The You Can Play Project continues its outreach to LGBT athletes from professional hockey players, including James Van Riemsdyk (Philadelphia Flyers), Mark Fayne (New Jersey Devils), Frans Nielsen (New York Islanders), Tyler Bozak (Toronto Maple Leafs), George Parros (Anaheim Ducks), Brandon Prust (New York Rangers), David Steckel (Toronto Maple Leafs), Andy Greene (New Jersey Devils), RJ Umberger (Columbus Blue Jackets) and Brian Boyle (New York Rangers). The You Can Play Project was started by Toronto Maple Leafs manager Brian Burke in memory of his son Brendan, who died in a car accident just months after coming out as gay.
