Schives Wins Marius-Fortier Trophy
He is also the Remparts’ nominee for the QMJHL’s Humanitarian of the Year.
“My actions in the community allow me to set a good example for the younger generations, as well as for my teammates,” Schives said in a team news release. “I grew up with two important models around me, my uncle Roger and my friend, whom I considered a brother, Aaron. Both of us left, but they taught me that despite their physical or mental disabilities, these people have a lot to offer and we can learn a lot from them.”
Schives, who is in his second season with the QMJHL’s Quebec Remparts had 8 points in 45 games from the Remparts’ blueline. The former Chatham Maroons defenceman is making an impact on the ice, and in the community.
“Whenever I participate in events, the important thing is that the happiness we bring to the people we meet and one thing they will remember for a long time. I am proud of what I accomplish and I understand the importance of our presence with them. Now it’s my turn to give back to the community. At just 18 years old, I still have a lot to learn to become a model, but every day I put all the effort necessary to achieve it.”
