As always, I LOVE to read the story behind the winner of Humanitarian Of The Year. This year, the award was given to Garrett McFadden!

Toronto, ON – The Ontario Hockey League today announced that defenceman Garrett McFadden of the Guelph Storm is the 2016-17 recipient of the Dan Snyder Memorial Trophy awarded annually to the OHL’s Humanitarian of the Year.

In September, 2016, the Storm captain introduced ‘McFadden’s Movement’; a mental health campaign that strives to change, help, and develop mental health among athletes.


Simply.....AWESOME!

Congrats to Garrett! :)

Agreed.

Since 2012, I have donated money to the organization/cause to which the player volunteers. I explain that I am donating as a salute to that player winning the Humanitarian Of The Year.

2012 - Andrew D'Agostini
2013 - Ben Fanelli
2014 - Scott Simmonds
2015 - Nick Paul
2016 - Will Petschenig (this one was cool because the organization was based in the USA)
2017 - Garrett McFadden
