Belated roundup of Guy's two recent charity tourneys

Meant to do this sooner, but life kind of got in the way.  Sorry about that.  :)

Anyhow, on March 22 Guy participated in the Hockey Helps the Homeless tourney at the Sportplexe 4 Glaces in Pierrefonds, Quebec.  $243,000 was raised for local homeless shelters.  NHL alumni included Vincent Damphousse, Stephane Richer, Karl Dykhuis, Georges Laraque, and P.J. Stock.  (link)

And on March 25 the Habs alumni took on the NHL alumni in a tilt at the Bell Centre.  Proceeds from the game benefited the Montreal Canadiens Children's Foundation.  Guy scored two goals but the Habs alumni fell to the NHL alumni, 5-3.  An interesting in-game trade was made when current Habs GM Marc Bergevin (who had been playing for the NHL alumni in his Blackhawks jersey) was traded to the Habs alumni for Chris Chelios, who then donned his Blackhawks jersey!  Also in the game playing for the Habs alumni was "L'Artiste," Alex Kovalev, who had announced his retirement just days prior to the game.  (link)   

Blog reader Anastessia Bettas sent along these pictures from the game.  Many thanks!

In addition, All Habs has a gallery from the event here.

Also, here's an article about Guy which was recently published.  If you understand French, have at it:
