Ice-spy hockey stars, say Ty Hafan children.

Super cool ice hockey stars paid a visit to the Ty Hafan Children's Hospice - and got a warm welcome. Three players from the Thomson Cardiff Devils team currently standing proudly at the top of the Elite league met children from the hospice at Sully.

Jason Becker, Russ Romaniuk and Jeff Burgoyne were taken on a tour of the hospice, which cares for children with terminal or life-limiting illnesses and their families. They placed their hand prints in paint on the Ty Hafan wall of stars, signed autographs and spoke to many of the children.

Among the young people they met was Rakesh Sarengi, 17, from Rhiwbina, Cardiff, who has cerebral palsy.

Devils' forward Russ said: 'It was great to meet the children in such a homely place and was a very moving experience for the three of us.'
