Montreal Canadiens defenseman Jeff Petry is opening tabs at two different local restaurants to feed hospital employees during the coronavirus pandemic.

As the veteran explained in an Instagram post, he will open $2,500 tabs at Mandy Salads and Notre-Boeuf-de-Grace beginning Sunday for anyone who shows a hospital badge to receive a free meal.

Petry explained his admiration for the hospital workers in the post:

"The around the clock hours they are working to help fight this crazy virus is nothing short of heroic. I’m sure they would say 'I’m just doing my job', but to us it’s more than that.
