It’s been a really rough start for Andrew Ladd’s New York Islanders career. One thing that’s been a mainstay is his charitable work.

Andrew Ladd is heading into year four of his seven-year deal with the New York Islanders, and it’s safe to say both sides would’ve liked the first three years to go better. Ladd’s struggles on the ice dropped to a low of just 11 points in 26 games.

Ladd couldn’t stay healthy and spent a majority of the season on IR rendering his $5.5 million cap hit ineffective. One thing that’s been a mainstay over his Islanders career is his charity fishing event, and honestly, I can’t get enough of it.

For now the third year in a row, The Ladd Foundation will host the Sturgeon Fishing Event in British Columbia. It’s not your prototypical fishing event, it’s run to bring awareness to conservation.

Not only is it really cool that Ladd cares so much about the environment and is using his platform to raise awareness for ancient species but the pictures that come out of this thing is always incredible.

Look at these things! They look like prehistoric dinosaurs. It’s a really unique event and provides the community with something really cool. Plus we get these pictures of hockey players holding up a fish Steve Irwin style.

The one thing I ask is that everyone remains safe out there on the water! The last thing the Islanders need is someone losing a finger to one of these beasts.
