Winnipeg Jets defenceman Zach Bogosian was the guest of honour at St. Ignatius School on Friday to reward students for their recycling efforts.
Grade 6 students won the Recycle Everywhere 101 Classroom Recycling Challenge after collecting 3,000 beverage containers during a week in February.
Bogosian signed autographs and posed for photos with the kids during his brief visit. He’s currently nursing a back injury and won’t play in the final game of the season in Calgary tonight.
About 150 classrooms entered and had to submit their final tally of empty bottles, cartons and juice boxes collected, along with a creative picture demonstrating their work.
