Members of the Ontario Reign hockey team spend time visiting patients. 

Members of the Ontario Reign hockey team recently spent several hours visiting with patients at Loma Linda University Children's Hospital.

The team played air hockey with the kids, colored pictures, played video games, flew paper airplanes and chatted with the patients.

This annual visit by the team paves the way for the upcoming Ontario Reign Jersey Night benefitting the hospital on Dec. 14.

During the game, Ontario Reign vs. Iowa Wild, players will wear custom Children's Hospital jerseys that will be auctioned off at the end of the evening.

Last year's jersey auction raised more than $18,000 for Children's Hospital.
