Detroit Red Wings goaltender and Ogdensburg native Jimmy Howard is donating $50,000 worth of N95 masks to the Detroit Medical Center.

Howard, through his Jimmy Howard Foundation, is buying the masks to protect healthcare workers who are fighting the battle against COVID-19. Earlier this month, Wings teammate Dylan Larkin and his dad, Kevin, paired up to ensure 50,000 vinyl powder-free and nitrile gloves were distributed to the Detroit Medical Center and St. Joseph Mercy Medical Group.

Howard, a two-time All-Star, has endured a rough season with a 2-23-2 record, 4.20 goals-against average and .882 save percentage.
