Baking cookies and making memories

Former Senator’s centre visit scores plenty of smiles.

Roger Neilson Children’s Hospice kids enjoyed a great afternoon thanks to a visit by former Senator’s centre Kyle Turris.

Turris, who retired from the NHL™ in 2022 after 14 seasons, more than half of his career playing for the Ottawa Senators, has a reputation for being one of the most well-liked players in the franchise’s history. We definitely know why. Kyle generously spent time with us, autographing cards and helping us bake, making it a memorable time and bringing plenty of smiles to our kids’ faces.

We want to thank Kyle for taking time to make such a special visit – and once again, share our gratitude for the wonderful relationship we have with the Ottawa Senators hockey club.
