Mayers, who played in the NHL for 15 seasons and was part of the Blackhawks’ Stanley Cup-winning squad in 2013, visited the Little Blackhawks program to conduct skill sessions and play games with children in the program. The eight-week program, which has 50 participants, began March 12. The Chicago Blackhawks also supplied player equipment and conducted equipment fittings for the program.
