What is Money on the Board?
Money on the board is a hockey tradition in which a player or coach will pledge money on a locker-room whiteboard as extra incentive to score a game-winning goal or win a key game. #SensMotB is our twist on that tradition. This grassroots Twitter campaign encourages fans to put money on the board for various in-game events, with the total sum being donated to charity.
We encourage you to be as creative as possible with your donations. Pledge $10 for every Anthony Duclair goal, $7 for every Brady Tkachuk penalty minute or $25 for every Jean-Gabriel Pageau shorthanded goal. All donations will support Kids Up Front Ottawa.

Attendance at events like these helps to foster feelings of inclusion and belonging in the children we help.
