↳ 10 Favorite Players: Ben Scrivens (1/10)

Scrivens gets the honor of being #1 on my list not just because I love him as a player. Despite not being a Leafs, Kings, or Oilers fan, Scrivens’ hard work and focus is very admirable, as is his journey to an NHL starting job. However, his on-ice product is not the reason Scrivens lands as my #1. It’s probably fair to say that the majority of NHLers are less than admirable people off-ice, in terms of beliefs and actions. This cannot be said about Ben Scrivens. As admirable as his on-ice play is, his off-ice actions are far more worthy of praise. There are a variety of reasons why Scrivens is simply an amazing human being. For starters, he’s more than your average NHLer who supports You Can Play. He and his wonderful wife wear YCP gear and attended the Toronto Pride Parade last summer, and he thinks it’s a big deal and spreads knowledge. He cares a lot about fundraisers, goes out of his way to show up at charity events and donate, and encourages others to do the same. He donates blood regularly, and again encourages others to do the same. He is aware of women’s issues and goes out of his way to be inclusive of girls in hockey, never mind his awesome friendship with Canadian Olympic goaltender Shannon Szabados. And when a douchebag writer wrote a rude article about his wife, he defended her in the best way possible. He is aware of social issues and is generally a really smart, practical guy who cares about others, as well as being statistically savvy. You’ll find awesome things like this this this this this this this this this this this and more in his Twitter favorites. He’s very funny, relatable, and grateful. And if he doesn’t think Jonathan Quick is all that (x, x, and x in his favorites)? Doesn’t hurt. ;)
