Attacking Capitals, Lars Eller wanted to do his part to help the community of Washington during the crisis of the sars coronavirus. While several of his teammates have provided meals to the staff of the hospitals in the region, the Danes decided to give a helping hand to the homeless.
“It is a most vulnerable part of our community, a group that does not have access to a safe shelter such as a house that does not have access to health care and all these other types of protection that others have,” said Eller to the newspaper “Washington Post”.
The former player of the Montreal canadiens has, therefore, proposed an idea to the company Healthe, a company specializing in ultraviolet light in which he himself invested. With the financial cooperation of Eller, Healthe has provided equipment to a non-profit organization that operates a shelter for the homeless in Washington.
“Before entering a space, you have to spend a few seconds under the portal and you reduce the viral load or of contagion that you bring with you, explained the founder and scientific director of Healthe, Fred Maxik.
“This is another string to our bow to try to keep our building without COVID-19, expressed the charge of the refuge Joseph Mettimano. We’re not going to relax the other measures. This is in addition to these things, and I’m sure there will be other things that we add. Having this type of technology is a real blessing.”
“I love when science and technology come together and something good comes out of it, said Eller. This allows people to benefit from it and reduce the risk of spread.”
Eller is a member of the Capitals since the 24th of June 2016, when the Canadian sent in the u.s. capital for two choices of the second round. He drives regularly on the third trio of “Caps” since and it has contributed to their conquest of the Stanley cup finals in 2018.
This season, he has amassed 16 goals and 23 assists for 39 points in 69 parts. It is his best campaign at the statistical level since the beginning of his career in the national hockey League in 2009-2010.
