Flyers' Voracek to donate $1,000 to fight multiple sclerosis for every point this season

Jakub Voracek will score for a cause this season.

The Philadelphia Flyers star winger, who signed an eight-year, $66-million contract extension during the offseason, pledged to donate $1,000 to help multiple sclerosis patients for every point he records in 2015-16.

Voracek set up a foundation in his native Czech Republic after his sister was diagnosed with MS two years ago.

"There is a little problem in the Czech Republic about the patients, that they don't get the treatment that they could or that everyone would want," Voracek told Dave Isaac of the Courier Post. "I started a foundation that is going to help the patients in Czech with MS and maybe in a year or two I'll start something here."

Vorcaek hit a career-high 81 points last season and feels he can top that moving forward, much to the benefit of others.

"I'm more confident and I've still got a lot of potential in the future, even this year."
