In recognition for his extensive community involvement, Kieran Craig, from Alexandria, is his team’s nominee for the LHJMQ Humanitarian Trophy.
Que ce soit à Gatineau, ou dans sa ville natale d’Alexandria, en Ontario, @Craigerrr_19 a toujours pris son rôle d’ambassadeur pour @LesOlympiques au sérieux. Il est le candidat de l’organisation pour le Trophée du Joueur humanitaire de cette année! ☺️#LHJMQ | #RondellesdOr— LHJMQ (@LHJMQ) April 19, 2020
The bilingual member of the Gatineau Olympiques, a graduate from Le Relais, had a career season in Quebec’s major junior hockey league, scoring 48 points in 64 games, before the campaign was stopped due to the COVID-19 pandemic. (The league’s remaining regular-season games and playoffs were subsequently cancelled.)
Off the ice, Craig has been a leader, with school presentations, support of blood drives, and hospital visits.
In the announcement of his selection, the 18-year-old is described as “a true ambassador for the organization,” the Gatineau Olympiques hockey club.
The league is scheduled to make the announcement of the award winner on May 12.
The 2019-20 season was Craig’s second at the major junior level. To check out his complete statistics with the Olympiques, see this webpage.
