Dampy Brar (Apna Hockey) Alexandria Briggs-Blake (Tucker Road Ducks Hockey) and John Haferman (Columbus Ice Hockey Club) are the three finalists for the 2019-20 Willie O'Ree Community Hero Award, given "to an individual who - through the sport of hockey - has positively impacted his or her community, culture or society," the National Hockey League announced today.
Fans submitted candidates for the Willie O'Ree Community Hero Award, with Willie O'Ree - in consultation and with the NHL ® - narrowing the field to three finalists. The public then votes for the ultimate winner, who will be revealed during the 2020 Conference Finals, with the exact date, format and time to be determined. Voting will begin Monday, July 20 and will run through Friday, July 24. Fans can vote and learn more about each finalist at NHL.com/OReeAward.
