Hockey Night in Liberia

How do a tonne of hockey jerseys end up in an impoverished African nation?  And what do the locals think of them?

For anyone who loves that sport or that continent or simply enjoys an interesting story, this article ran in the National Post in April, as the NHL playoffs were nearing once again.

As an aside: If anyone reads this who grew up in the same region of southwest Saskatchewan as me, then pay special attention to the name of the column’s writer.  Small world, eh?
