HEO Volunteer of the Year Award Presented to Mark Desnoyers

Mark Desnoyers accompanied one of his sons to the Ottawa Senators game against the L.A. Kings. Little did he know that he was being brought to the game to be presented with the Hockey Eastern Ontario (HEO) Volunteer of the Year award.

“First I was lured to the game by one of my sons, who said he’d won some free tickets,” remembered Desnoyers. “We got there and we were in a suite by the Senator’s box, in the 400 section. We start watching the game, and the next thing I know someone is grabbing my arm and saying ‘come with me, you’re the volunteer of the year for HEO.’ And we went down to ice level, and they presented me with a game jersey with my name and number on it.” more

Local Goal Judge Rick Lapierre Still Involved.

Local Goal Judge Rick Lapierre May Not Be Able to Play Hockey – but He’s Still Involved

Forty-two-year-old Rick Lapierre has been passionate about sports for most of his life. When he’s not working - goal judging - you’re likely to find Lapierre watching hockey, baseball, football, or some other sport.

In terms of playing sports, Lapierre has played hockey, but a different kind of hockey than the kind that comes to mind.

“It’s a different kind of hockey because I’m disabled,” says Lapierre. “So I played sledge hockey for a while in the early 2000s for about ten years, but it got too hard to travel in the winter time from Ottawa to Cornwall. That’s why I quit doing that. I swim twice a week and I go to the gym twice a week so I keep myself active.” more
