The Nylander brothers are joining together to provide meals for those in need, essential workers and frontline heroes during the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Thursday, Alex Nylander of the Blackhawks and William Nylander of the Maple Leafs both shared a video on Twitter with a message about their effort called “Hockey Brothers Support Health and Hope.”

“In Toronto and Stockholm (Sweden), we are partnering with some of our favorite restaurants so that healthy meals (between 7,500 to 8,000) can be prepared and delivered to frontline heroes and others in need,” William said.

Alex added they are also supporting a local food bank in Chicago.

“We look forward to meeting family and friends again to share great meals,” William said.

“Until then support each other and stay safe and healthy,” Alex added.

“We’re all in this together,” William said.

The Blackhawks swept the two-game series against the Maple Leafs this season, 5-4 in Chicago and 6-2 in Toronto. William, however, got the better of Alex in the point department with three goals, including two in the first game, compared to Alex’s one assist.
