Two weeks after bringing the Stanley Cup home, Nazem Kadri has delivered to his hometown again, making a $1 million donation to the London Health Sciences Centre.

The donation, announced Thursday at a ceremony, will see the Ambulatory Surgical Centre renamed the Nazem Kadri Surgical Centre in his honour.

Kadri has had a busy summer since winning the Stanley Cup in July with the Colorado Avalanche. The 31-year-old then signed a seven-year, $49 million deal with the Calgary Flames as a free agent, before bringing the Cup home to London for a parade and a trip to his mosque
