Former NHL Star to Speak at CNC
Prince George, B.C. – Retired NHL player turned motivational speaker Theo Fleury will speak to aboriginal youth at risk at the College of New Caledonia next month.
The free event will take place Monday Feb. 6 from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Gathering Place.
“Fleury will share his story of hope, moving forward, and never giving up even when the obstacles are great,” says CNC in a release.
Following his presentation, he will be available for a meet and greet with those in attendance.
“While Fleury’s visit to Prince George is in conjunction with the Timberwolves Legacy Breakfast at UNBC, his appearance at CNC will focus on healing and is targeted toward confidence building for those facing addiction, disability or mental illness,” adds CNC.
The former NHLer famously struggled with addiction as a player. Once he retired from the sport, he disclosed he had been the victim of sexual abuse at the hands of a former coach. He’s since developed a career as an author and public speaker.
