An 11-year-old Minnesota boy will not be awarded a $50,000 prize for making a miraculous hockey shot during a recent charity contest because he took the shot in place of his twin brother, according to a story in the New York Daily News.

A promotions company will instead donate $20,000 to a pair of Minnesota youth hockey programs in the boys' names, according to the story.
