NHL team buys pizza for the homeless in Edmonton
The Vegas Golden Knights are doing what they can to help those in need in Edmonton.
On Wednesday, some of the team's members arranged to have pizza delivered to a number of homeless people in Edmonton, just outside of the NHL's bubble.
While the hockey players could not leave their bubble inside Alberta's capital, they teamed up with Boyle Street Community Services to make sure the pizza got to those who needed it.
"Huge thank you to the Vegas Golden Knights for buying pizza for our community members on this beautiful day! We always appreciate any support from NHL teams, who are playing across the street at Rogers Place," the community support organization wrote on Facebook.
Although the specific team members who organized the kind gesture chose to remain anonymous, the team received praise on social media from many of their fans.

"I think the Vegas Golden Knights gained a few fans today," Elliot Tanti, communications and development manager at Boyle Street Community Services said, speaking to Global News. "People were very happy."
NHL teams are currently restricted to their bubbles in two Canadian cities: Edmonton and Toronto.
Games resumed on Aug. 1, however the teams reported to their designated cities on July 26. All players will remain in isolation as long as they are there.
