Community Involvement: Chris has volunteered hundreds of hours in the community throughout his hockey career, including speaking with kids at churches, schools and during hospital visits. While playing in the QMJHL, he was awarded the league’s Home Hardware Humanitarian of the Year award. In addition to starting a program called “Cats Corner with Chris,” where underprivileged children could attend hockey games free of charge, he raised more than $15,000 for a new wheelchair for an 11-year-old fan with cerebral palsy. Chris has dived right into helping HP4K make a difference in the Cincinnati area.
“I love helping kids and allowing them to do things that they normally wouldn’t be able to or wouldn’t have the opportunity to do.”
