If the Stanley Cup wasn't enough incentive, Domino's Pizza Canada CEO Michael Schlater is giving the Winnipeg Jets something else to play for.

For each win, from the Western Conference finals on, Schlater will donate $25,000 to each the True North Youth Foundation and the Children's Hospital Foundation.

Schlater opened his first Domino's here in Winnipeg.

"I was right at Portage and Valour... two blocks from Rae & Jerry's," said Schlater.

Schlater made the announcement today. He says the win the Jets got on Saturday does count.

"We already have one win in there," said Schlater.

If the Jets win the cup, each charity will receive $200,000.

Schlater and his wife Lilibeth are also contributing to a fundraising campaign to relocate and redevelop the Children's Hospital-HSC Winnipeg Heart Centre. The campaign has a $3.5-million goal. The province and Telus have also contributed.

Dr. Reeni Soni is the director of the pediatric cardiology program.

"When the clinic was built -- the existing clinic -- we saw approximately 1,500-1,700 patients per year. That was back in the late 1980s. Over time, that volume has increased, and now we see nearly 6,000 patients a year in the same existing space," said Soni.

Soni said they're hoping the new location will open by the end of 2020 but that still needs to be finalized. The relocation will allow for additional exam rooms, create an isolation area for patients with infections and other resistant conditions, dedicate a space for counselling, and more.

A unit at the Children's Hospital is being named after Michael and Lilibeth Schlater.
