A sign of support

I'm trying to rally the troops a bit here as a show of support. Well, not HERE specifically, but in reality to a player personally.

You may or may not have heard the news, but goalie Riku Helenius is supposed to be returning to the United States shortly. That may not seem like news, but why he departed the Syracuse Crunch in early April is why this is relevant. Helenius, who also left the team earlier in the season for personal reasons, was taking care of his ill mother. It was learned today that Helenius' mother had passed away.

What I'd like to do is encourage people - Syracuse Crunch fans, Tampa Bay Lightning fans, etc -- to send letters of support or sympathy to Helenius (care of the Crunch) so they are waiting for him upon his return to War Memorial.

Why? Because we're part of his family, his hockey family. And it's important that we're there for him, like it's important that his teammates are there for him on his return.

If you'd like to send Helenius a note of sympathy or support, you can send it to:

Riku Helenius
c/o Jim Sarosy
Syracuse Crunch Hockey Club
800 South State Street
Syracuse, NY 13202

If you'd like to participate, you're not expected to send much... Just a token of support, thoughts, prayers.
