The Toronto Maple Leafs are hosting the Don Mills Flyers Saturday, the team of murdered Greater Toronto Hockey League player Roy Pejcinovski.
The Flyers got a chance to walk through the Maple Leafs’ dressing room before skating on the Air Canada Centre ice ahead of Saturday’s Leafs vs. Winnipeg Jets game.
Jets star Mark Scheifele also met with the Flyers, signing autographs in the stands.
Pejcinovski, a 15-year-old star goaltender, was slain in a triple homicide earlier this month. Roy’s mother, Krassimira, and 13-year-old sister, Venallia, were also killed.
The Pejcinovski Family Memorial Fund was established in their honour. The funds are being directed to causes including domestic violence and children initiatives such as sport and play
