The Hockey Humanitarian Award Foundation announced the nominees today for the award that is presented annually to college hockey’s finest citizen — a student-athlete who makes significant contributions not only to his or her team but also to the community-at-large through leadership in volunteerism.
Brosseau is Clarkson’s team leader on all the Golden Knights’ community service projects and always donates his time. The junior from St. Lambert, Que. took the lead for Clarkson with Team Impact last season, which is a program that connects children with a disability and makes them a member of your team. He has made it an extremely rewarding experience for all and has continued that role this year.
This year, Brosseau also orchestrated the Golden Knights Hockey Fights Cancer game against Brown on November 30. He solicited donations, recognized cancer survivors and organized with Brown to form a coordinated effort to help public awareness of Hockey Fights Cancer.
Brosseau has also been Clarkson Hockey’s Team Captain for Relay For Life to raise money for the American Cancer Society. He has also volunteered for visiting/reading at local elementary schools and participated in the Town of Potsdam’s Annual Spring Cleanup.
Inducted into Clarkson’s Phalanx, the University’s highest honorary society (leadership/service), last spring as a sophomore,Brosseau is an excellent student majoring in Financial Information Analysis (FIA), compiling a GPA just under 4.0. He is on track to complete his undergraduate requirements and receive his bachelor’s degree this May. He has been selected an AHCAKrampade Scholar All-American and named to the ECAC Hockey All-Academic team after his freshman and sophomore seasons.
Brosseau, who served as an assistant captain as a sophomore, has been a leading contributor on the ice throughout his Clarkson career as a left wing on the Knights’ top lines. Through 95 career games, he has recorded 64 points on 22 goals and 42 assists.
Finalists for the 2019 Hockey Humanitarian Award will be announced in February. The 2019 recipient will be honored in a ceremony on Friday, April 12 as part of the NCAA Men’s Frozen Four weekend in Buffalo, N.Y.
The group of nominees includes 15 seniors and two juniors, along with 13 male (9 Div. I) and four female candidates. The list includes nine forwards, six defenseman and two goaltenders.
