Jonathan Huberdeau has pledged his brain to science.  

The Calgary Flames forward was one of several individuals, which also includes All-Ivy hockey star Kalley Armstrong of Harvard University and Major General (retired) Denis Thompson, to offer his brain to Project Enlist Canada for research on brain injuries after death.

“As an NHL player, I’m very aware of the impact of traumatic brain injuries, concussions, and the link to other mental health issues,” Huberdeau said in a Project Enlist release Monday. “I’m proud to support Canadian military veterans by pledging to donate my brain to Project Enlist and support research to improve the quality of life of all military personnel who so bravely and courageously served our country.”

Huberdeau joins New Jersey Devils Ben Lovejoy in the commitment. 

Lovejoy became the first active NHLer to make the pledge, according to Rick Westhead of TSN.
