Former NHL player Sheldon Kennedy will be in Brandon on Thursday to receive an award from Assiniboine Community College.

Kennedy will be accepting the Assiniboine Courage Award. The award was created by Assiniboine to celebrate people who demonstrate courage in their business, community, professional or personal life, a media release from the institution said.

Kennedy is an advocate for victims of abuse both in Canada and around the world.

The former hockey star was sexually abused by his coach, Graham James.

The documentary “Swift Current” will also be played in Brandon during his time in the city. It documents his journey from a young hockey player, when he was sexually abused by James. It goes on to talk about the work he is doing all over to help victims of abuse.

Kennedy will attend the by invitation-only film screening at Landmark Cinemas in Brandon on Thursday.

During his time in the NHL, Kennedy played for the Detroit Red Wings, Boston Bruins and the Calgary Flames.
