Winnipeg Jets visit HSC Psychealth – Child and Adolescent Inpatient Unit

December 9, 2019

This afternoon, the Health Sciences Centre Psychealth – Child and Adolescent Inpatient Unit’s red and green holiday décor added a few more colours: blue and white.

Youth patients at HSC's Psychealth Centre hung out with the Winnipeg Jets on Monday afternoon (December 9, 2019).

The Winnipeg Jets’ Mark Scheifele, Dmitry Kulikov, Bryan Little, Andrew Copp, and Nik Ehlers swapped ice hockey for air hockey at their annual visit to HSC.  Psychealth patients were ecstatic to meet, chat, play games, and sing carols with some of their favourite players—Kulikov even had a piano lesson from an HSC staff member on the unit!

Dmitry Kulikov, #7 on the NHL's Winnipeg Jets, plays air hockey with a youth patient while Mark Scheifele, #55, watches.

Thank you, Winnipeg Jets, for starting the holiday celebrations early for these patients.
