Prior to the event the foundation chair, Brian Callum, praised Hnidy’s accomplishments and shared how excited he and the audience were about having him speak at the event.
“He’s a former NHL player and is part of the radio team for the Jets so it should been an entertaining time,” Callum said.
Along with serving as the foundations main fundraiser for the year, it also featured an awards ceremony that Hnidy was proud to be a part of. Grants were also handed out to worthwhile community groups and organizations at the event, making the event a game changer for the community as well as those in attendance that were able to hear Hnidy speak about his career.
Hnidy enjoyed a long and successful professional hockey career in the NHL and several other top notch leagues. From 2000 to 2011 he helped the Senators, Thrashers and Bruins to several NHL playoff appearances and was a key member of each teams success. Over the course of his career he was one of the most consistent defensemen in the league, even scoring 16 goals to add to his already stellar reputation as a stopper and a leader for his teams.
