Jacob Trouba is Winnipeg Jets ambassador for Hockey Is For Everyone
The month of February has been designated as Hockey Is For Everyone month. Via the NHLPA website:
Across the league throughout the year, the NHL and NHLPA work to provide the sport in a positive environment for players, families and fans of every race, colour, religion, national origin, gender, age, sexual orientation, socio-economic status and for those with disabilities.
It is important to recognize that, within the NHL family, there are individuals who identify in many different ways. Whether they are fans, players, coaches or management, they are all important parts of what makes the NHL successful and all should feel welcome. In short, no matter your background or circumstances, your passion and love for the game is the thing that matters.
This season, like last, Jacob Trouba will represent the Winnipeg Jets as their ambassador in this worthwhile endeavor.
He joins 30 other of his fellow players in this role. Check out the full list here.
