The entire community of Roberval, in the Saguenay region of Quebec, about 7 hours north of Montreal, has opened up to welcome families affected by the wildfires.

Girard in particular has brought in families, solidifying himself as one of the best people in hockey.

With thousands of families in Quebec forced to evacuate due to the ongoing forest fires, Sam Girard opened his home in Roberval to victims of the fires W
Two families, which includes a 14-month old baby are currently staying in his bedroom, with more on the way.
With many of the community centres being filled up, these families would be left with no where else to turn without people like Girard.

What an incredible gesture from the Avalanche defenseman. Samuel Girard is certainly more than just a hockey player.
