Sabres goalie Ryan Miller's charity event raised a bunch of money for sick kids and produced an early candidate for NHL photo of the year.
In mid-December, Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller held the seventh edition of his
Catwalk for Charity and raised nearly $125,000 for his
Steadfast Foundation, which supports "year-round diversionary events and psychosocial programs" for children with cancer. A stick-tap to him for his ongoing work, which has raised more than $1.1 million over the years. On a lighter note, we will forever be in Miller's debt for this glorious photo that came out of the event, which features 6-foot-7 Tyler Myers and 5-foot-9 Tyler Ennis adorned in "Cirque du Sabres with a Masquerade Twist" attire.

UPDATE: My three favorite captions... 1. Is that the Flames new third jersey...?? - Bryan Fink
2. say hello to my little friend - Gregory Pike
3. We're twins...honest - Mark Thornhill Here's a video of the "catwalk" portion of the proceedings, which also contains some giggle-worthy moments. Heck, any time you get some NHLers showing some personality it's worth a watch...
