"We've always had a very strong youth hockey connection," Madonia said. "When we played (Fox Valley Ice Arena), we had a great relationship with the Cyclones. Now that we are at Leafs, we send six or eight skaters once a week to their youth practices to give pointers and build a relationship with the kids. We get big crowds at games because the kids have connections with our players. They're never going to get to meet Patrick Kane or Jonathan Toews. Those guys might be their favorite players, but there isn't that connection like there is with our players."
