Thrashers forward Ilya Kovalchuk bowls with Malachi Foster, 9, who is a part of the Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation on Tuesday night at Jillian's at Discover Mills. "That was fun having a Thrashers player help me bowl," said Foster. "He's not that good at bowling, but I know he's good at hockey." Kovalchuck hosted a party with food, games, bowling and signed jerseys for groups of children from Foster Children's Foundation, Gwinnett Children's Shelter, Lawrenceville Boys & Girls Club and Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation.
