Toronto children and youth face-off with Mats Sundin at downtown community centre
Councillor Pam McConnell (Ward 28 Toronto Centre-Rosedale), representatives
from Toronto Parks and Recreation and Toronto Maple Leafs Captain Mats Sundin
launched the ninth season of the NHL Street Buds Program at Rose Avenue
Community Centre today.

The Esso NHL Street Buds provide more than 3,500 boys and girls between the
ages of six and sixteen the opportunity to play organized ball hockey at 44
Toronto Parks and Recreation community recreation centres. Established in
January 1995, the program goals are skill development, exercise and fun.

"Toronto Parks and Recreation is extremely proud of its successful partnership
with the Toronto Maple Leafs; hundreds of children and youth have benefited
from a highly successful program that compliments one of our divisional
priorities, which is child and youth development", said Claire Tucker-Reid,
General Manager of Toronto Parks and Recreation.

Rose Avenue Community Centre is located at 675 Ontario St. (south of Bloor
Street East, between Sherbourne and Parliament Streets).
