There's only one ice hockey team in Kenya: the Ice Lions. Unfortunately, as much as they love the sport, they have nobody to play. Tim Hortons brought them to the birthplace of hockey, Canada, for their first-ever game. But, they didn’t just get an opponent. They also got new equipment and two special teammates –NHL superstars, Sidney Crosby and Nathan MacKinnon. This once-in-a-lifetime experience left the Ice Lions emotional beyond words and resonated throughout Canada and the world.
