Martine St-Victor: Carey Price has stepped up. Will the NHL?

  Martine St-Victor: Carey Price has stepped up. Will the NHL? On Nov. 9, Carey Price — the Habs’ beloved goaltender — bravely announced via his Instagram account that he had been treated for substance abuse, and that he was taking a break to tend to his mental health. Thirty years earlier, almost to the day, basketball superstar Magic Johnson announced that he was retiring — at the height of his career — from the storied Los Angeles Lakers and from the National Basketball Association altogether, because of the HIV virus he had contracted. The news had the effect of a bomb, and like Johnson, it transcended sports.

"I remember being 15 and having my first anxiety attack and not knowing how to process it and not knowing where it came from, and wishing I had an outlet to figure out how to understand those things," Stokes said in his acceptance speech, reported E! News.

He also praised Close and the entire BC2M organization. "It felt like I had found a second home," she said, telling the audience that the award "is not for me. This is for the 15-year-old Chase, who didn't know his place in society. And was not sure who he was."

Also honoured at the event were "Schitt's Creek" stars Dan Levy, who posed for a photo with Stokes and Close.
