Congratulations, Kurtis!

Gabriel is the San Jose Sharks first-ever King Clancy Trophy finalist, presented “to the player who best exemplifies leadership qualities on and off the ice and has made a noteworthy humanitarian contribution in his community.” He was nominated along with P.K. Subban and Pekka Rinne.

Per the NHL: “Gabriel is a steadfast advocate for the LGBTQ+ community. He uses his social media accounts to amplify messaging and educate fans and fellow players, while supporting LGBTQ+ causes by participating in events and having candid conversations. In a digital age, he has been able to use his platform on Twitter and Instagram to spread awareness like never before.

“He supported the local San Jose nonprofit, the LGBTQ Youth Space, by donating a custom, game-worn skate to be auctioned by the Sharks Foundation. Featuring the colors of the Pride flag and the message ‘Love is Love,’ the item raised $1,600 in support of the nonprofit.

“Reflecting his interest in raising awareness for racial and social justice, Gabriel’s second skate in the custom set, which features the messages ‘BLM’ & ‘Hope, Empathy, Change,’ will be auctioned by the Sharks Foundation during its Juneteenth auction this summer, with proceeds going to a diversity-focused nonprofit.

“Gabriel has been an ongoing advocate for You Can Play, a nonprofit working to ensure the safety and inclusion for all who participate in sports, including LGBTQ+ athletes, coaches and fans. He also has supported the African American Community Service AgencyLas Lomitas Education FoundationHousing Industry FoundationSan Jose Firefighters Burn FoundationGirls on the Run Silicon Valley and the Sharks Foundation.”

It’s a well-deserved honor, and not surprisingly, Gabriel is celebrating by giving back:
