I absolutely loathe to write about golf. But it is for a good cause so…

On June 14 Nicklas Bäckström is hosting a charity golf tournament outside his hometown Gävle for the third year in a row.  Last year the Children’s Hospital in Gävle received 100,000 Swedish Kronor from his foundation. Bäckström’s foundation also gave away golf and hockey scholarships.

NHL-players like Henrik Zetterberg, Jacob Markström, Anders Lindbäck, Mikael Samuelsson, Magnus Pääjärvi and Marcus Johansson as well as some former NHL players are taking part in the tournament.

”So far we have been able to donate 135,000 kronor. It’s great that so many people help out to make this whole thing possible,” says Nicklas’s dad Anders Bäckström to Gefle Dagblad.

Nicklas told the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet that he thinks the LA Kings will beat the New Jersey Devils in five games.
