Kings players visit some avid hockey fans in New York City

IMG_2235 A couple Kings players took a timeout from their New York road trip today to visit with some young hockey fans.

Kings captain Dustin Brown and defenseman Rob Scuderi spent time with two boys from the American Special Hockey Assn. while visiting the NHL Store in New York City.

Shane Bracken, 10, is a hockey player who hasn't let his battle with autism prevent him from playing the game. Campbell Donovan, 8, also plays hockey and is an avid hockey fan -- his favorite pastime is watching classic NHL games on television every morning. Donovan was born prematurely and is developmentally disabled.

For more information on the American Special Hockey Assn., check out its website.
