June 15–Sheldon Kennedy

Posted: June 16, 2011 in Uncategorized

First off, congratulations to the Boston Bruins for winning the Stanley Cup. The season is finally over. Ca’t wait until September.

Sheldon Kennedy
Selected by Detroit Red wings in round 4, number 80 overall in the 1988 NHL Draft.
Sheldon Kennedy skated for three teams in his eight-year NHL career and played for Canada’s gold-medal-winning team in the 1988 World Junior Hockey Championship. He is widely known for his courageous decision to charge his minor-league hockey coach, Graham James, with sexual assault for the abuse he suffered over a five-year period.

Sheldon’s decision to go public with the charges rocked the hockey world and forced him into the media spotlight.
