At least that’s what the TSN network announced on Monday through its journalist Rick Westhead. Thus, the Quebecer would allow specialized researchers to learn more about pathologies related to concussions and injuries, among others, regularly identified in hockey. The same source clarified that an American company’s partner organization, the Concussion Legacy Foundation, will be the happy beneficiary of the striker’s initiative.

Since the beginning of his National League career, Huberdeau has served a total of 341 penalty minutes in the regular season. The former Florida Panthers is obviously better known for his attacking talents, as evidenced by the 115 points he scored last season.
