Flames forward Jonathan Huberdeau will donate brain to science

Huberdeau is joining former astronaut and MP Marc Garneau, Kalley Armstrong and Denis Thompson.



New Flames forward Jonathan Huberdeau is committing to donate his brain for research into brain injuries for soliders.

He is going to donate his brain to Project Enlist Canada, which is a program with the Concussion Legacy Foundation Canada (CLFC).

The program's goal is to serve as a catalyst for research on TBI (traumatic brain injury), CTE (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) and PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) in military veterans.

Huberdeau says that he is aware of the impact of TBI, concussions and the link to other mental health issues. Huberdeau himself had a concussion in 2014. He says that he is proud to support military veterans.
