London Knights captain Dylan Hunter was blown away when Buffalo Bills legend Jim Kelly bought his hockey jersey at the London Sports Celebrity Dinner and Auction on Monday night at the London Convention Centre.

"I didn't know he did that and then he asked me to write something on it and sign it," the 20-year-old Hunter said. "When he mentioned it, I just looked at Rob Schremp and we were both totally surprised."

Kelly's son, whose name was Hunter, was born with fatal Krabbe leukodystrophy and lived for eight years. The former Bills quarterback devotes much of his time to raising money in Hunter's name to battle the deadly disease.

"It was so heart-wrenching when he talked about his son Hunter and raising $10 million for the foundation," Dylan Hunter said. "He's an unbelievable guy and you really have to respect what he has accomplished."

Earlier, Kelly had talked to Dylan Hunter and Knights goalie Adam Dennis, both Buffalo Sabres draft picks, about the city.

"He lives there and he told us about where to go to find the good places to eat," Hunter said. "It was great to meet him."
