Growing up in small-town Saskatchewan, Dennis Polonich was a rough, tough kid who fought frequently with his brothers and other kids in the neighbourhood. And yet, on the ice, as an all-star midget player, he won an award as a "most gentlemanly player."
The Detroit Red Wings selected him 118th overall in the 1973 Amateur Draft. In 1978, Polonich was at his irritating best when he got way under the skin of Colorado Rockies' Wilf Paiement. Paiement smashed him across the face with a stick. The incident provoked a lawsuit that brought Polonich what was then an astronomical settlement of $850,000 in 1982. At about that time, The Dennis Polonich Show had fallen off in the Red Wings' ratings and he was demoted to Adirondack of the AHL where he played most of the five seasons that followed.

Carson played seven seasons in the NHL with the Philadelphia Flyers and Hartford Whalers. He was born in Oxbow, Saskatchewan, but grew up in North Battleford, Saskatchewan.
Carson was drafted 56th overall in the 1979 Entry draft. After 4 seasons with the WHL in Saskatoon and Billings and one season in the minor leagues, Carson made the Flyers team on a full time basis in 1982-83. However due to the Flyer's strong depth, he was quickly labeled as a role player on the Flyer's 3rd or 4th lines.
Aside from an injury plagued 1983-84 season, he remained a big leaguer full time until 1988. Late in what proved to be his final NHL season (1987-88) Carson was traded to the Hartford Whalers. Carson finished the season in Hartford and rounded out his professional career the following year with the Whalers AHL farm team.
Lindsay Carson played in 373 NHL games collecting 66 goals and 80 assists for 146 points.

Our mission is to provide survivors of traumatic life events with the treatment and support needed to reclaim their lives. Our goal is to pave the road for trauma healing and create valuable conversations about mental health, trauma and abuse. Removing the stigma, starting the healing, one day at a time.
One of the ways we are doing this is through our therapy grant program, which allows approved candidates to receive designated therapy services, paid for via our foundation. Each approved grant is currently for $750.
The goal for our tournament is to raise $25,000 that will enable 33 individuals to access therapy grants.
