As former captain of the Philadelphia Flyers, Keith Primeau ’11 has learned countless lessons through his athletic career both on and off the ice. Primeau skated for the Flyers from 1999 to 2006. He also played in the 1999 and 2004 NHL All-Star games. He officially retired from professional hockey on September 14, 2006, after suffering from a concussion just 9 games into the 2005-2006 season.
Because of both his renowned leadership and generous spirit, Neumann University proudly presented Keith Primeau the inaugural Institute for Sport, Spirituality and Character Development Award. The evening included a talk by Primeau titled The Ethical Value of Sports: Building Character through Competition.
