FARMERS BRANCH - While the scorching temperatures remind us we’re still in summer’s strong embrace, some kiddos cooled down Saturday as they enjoyed a friendly game of sled hockey at the Dr. Pepper Star Center.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society teamed up with some of the Dallas Stars leading men, Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin, for an hour long ice charity event.

“A family friend from back home has been living with MS for a few years now and I thought what better way to donate and give back," Benn said. “We had a great day out here playing a little sled hockey."

It was the first time either player had strapped into a sled, and they were amazed by what both the pros and kids around them could do.

“It was a lot of fun, it’s a lot harder than it looks,” Benn said. “The guys we had out there today, that actually play, made it look a lot easier than it is.”

The two players hung around after the skate to take pictures and sign autographs for the kids and fans in attendance. Now, that’s a perfect way to spend a hot summer day.
