Wild Head Coach Bruce Boudreau helps the Wounded Warrior Project with a generous gift. Boudreau gave the foundation $2,500 on Friday afternoon at the Plymouth Ice Center. This is a foundation that's close to Boudreau's heart.

"I used to go to the Nats games and sit up there and talk to the gentleman and ladies and you'd look at the horrific injuries they've had. All they wanted to do was get better and go back and be with there pals in their units. I always thought that was so special and brave," says Boudreau.


The Wounded Warrior Project has been in full effect for the past fourteen years. It's a foundation that continues to grow, but could always use additional help in it's funding.

"It's a cause all Americans can get around. These warriors fought for us and for our freedom and it's something we can believe in. You can support the warrior as they transition out of the military and come back home," says Angela Hemmen Physical Health & Wellness Regional Director for the Wounded Warriors Project.
