The Memorial Cup has been over for three weeks, but the legacy of the event continues with the Mooseheads giving Hockey Nova Scotia well over one hundred thousand dollars.

The money came from 50/50 draws sponsored by Nova Scotia Power through the ten day tournament this year.

Mooseheads President Brian Urquhart says being able to support a community that is - themselves - so supportive of the herd is a great feeling.

"You know when we first sat down to bid on this event, we talked about creating a legacy for the event, and making sure that that legacy helped youth in the province, and youth that play hockey," says Urquhart. "So an exciting day for our organization to be able to give back and help some of those kids."

Meanwhile, Hockey Nova Scotia Executive Director Amy Walsh says they were extremely happy with the good news.

"Hearing this announcement is really great news for us, a big part of our role is not only to create opportunities, but to find ways to allow more kids to play hockey, and it's funds like this that just enable more kids to participate in hockey," says Walsh.

President and CEO of NS Power Karen Hutt says this is a fantastic day for them, and they didn't know the 50/50 draw would generate as much money as it did through the generosity of Nova Scotians.
