Doyle has selected The Make-A-Wish Foundation of Idaho and the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest Idaho, who are both charitable partners of the Steelheads. Doyle will present a $500 check to each charity in an on-ice ceremony during the second intermission of Idaho’s game against Victoria on Saturday.
