When I was a kid I attended a hockey camp run by former NHL forward and Buffalo native, Todd Marchant. It was one of the most rewarding experiences ever and it was so cool to not only be out there with pro athletes but also get to talk and pick Marchant and other players' brains.
This is awesome that Harris is doing this for the kids of Buffalo.
