Found November 25, 2012 on NY Rangers Blog:
While everything about last night's Operation Hat Trick charity game was perfect, one strange site was seeing Vinny from the "Jersey Shore" as Team Richards head coach. Assuming the reason he participated was because of his obvious connection to New Jersey. He's also from Staten Island which was one of the areas hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy... So much fun tonight!! Big W and coach @vinnyguadagnino was happy with the team:) instagr.am/p/Sb-2ZmCrSP/ — Henrik Lundqvist (@HLundqvist30) November 25, 2012 ...despite Vinny's connections to the tragedy, I still don't think belonged at the event. His being there seemed like more of a publicity stunt you'd see from the NBA, not our beloved NHL where things are much more humbled.

NHL Asked NBC To Not Broadcast Operation Hat Trick

Actions often speak louder than words. As the NHL and the players are stuck in a PR battle, it's easy for each side to spin things however they want them to appear. Actions, though, speak for themselves.
