Told #Sabres Captain Jack Eichel has teamed with Bauer and will be donating thousands of masks to area hospitals. @wgrz— Adam Benigni (@AdamBenigni) April 1, 2020
In case you missed it, Bauer has been creating face shields to be distributed around the country to hospitals. The Athletic had a good story on how Bauer quickly responded to the need for PPE for those essential workers on the front lines dealing with COVID-19.
The NHL announced yesterday that they’ve extended teams self isolation period until at least April 15th. It doesn’t appear that sports will be returning any time soon.
Stay safe, healthy, and remember to follow the guidelines from local authorities.
