Some people try to do good deeds and tell the whole world about them. Others just do the good deeds without waiving a flag and pleas for Twitter followers.
Here’s a story for you about one of the most humble people - Red Wings forward Pavel Datsyuk and how his good deed possibly went further than he thought it would himself.

About 10 years or so ago there was a young boy who lived in the Russian city of Kazan. His name was Alexander. Even though he was about eight at the time, he excelled in hockey. Unfortunately, there were problems with hockey equipment, or lack thereof. So some friends asked Pavel Datsyuk to help. And he did, sending some professional hockey sticks and skates to the boy Datsyuk had never even met.

Right now that boy, who also happens to be a former first round draft pick, is a star forward for the Winnipeg Jets. His name is Alexander Burmistrov.

Who knew this was going to happen?

(Thanks to my friend Pavel Lysenkov for sharing)

Just when you thought this guy couldnt be more awesome

Edler, Markstrom, Hansen, 2nd round pick 2014 to Islanders for Ryan Strome, 5th overall pick 2014

This is fairly even as well.

I like stories like these. Reminds me of the Howe-Roenick story in a way.

Wow that's terrific.

It really upsets me to know that out there in the world there are people who are doing menial jobs just to survive because they had a talent and a passion but they didn't have the tools or the support to allow them to pursue it.

That's what makes it so special to be able to help. Whether it's through donations of money, equipment, facilities, coaching, camps, or whatever else, it's really cool to get involved with grassroots sports because you have no idea who you might be grooming for future success.

Thanks for sharing OP :)

Datsyuk is one of, if not the classiest player in the league.

Pavel is awesome for that.

I wonder if Alexander Burmistrov ever paid him back.

Everyone who makes the NHL had luck on their side. Those who didn't make it obviously wern't as lucky. No need to feel any emotion really.

Wow. Thats awesome!

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

For a second I thought this was going to be about Datsyuk meeting Edler because this was on CDC.....

It's not about need. It's about want. Feeling sorry is about wanting to help.

You may not feel any "want" to help, but that doesn't mean other people should feel the same way as you.
This thread was really just a figment of your imagination...

No surprises that Burmistrov models his playing style after Datsyuk.
