TORONTO – The Dr. Tom Pashby Sports Safety Award selection committee announced on Monday that Ottawa physician Mark Aubry is the 2006 recipient of this coveted award. The official presentation of the third annual Pashby Award trophy, along with the $10,000 cash prize, was made to Dr. Aubry on Tuesday, June 27 in Ottawa.

The Dr. Tom Pashby Sports Safety Award recognizes the outstanding contributions towards the prevention of catastrophic injuries in sport and recreational activities. ‘Doc’ Pashby died in August 2005 at the age of 90. The first award was presented in 2004 to Dr. Patrick Bishop, professor emeritus at the University of Waterloo and impact biomechanics expert. In 2005, the recipient was Dr. Karen Johnston -- a neurosurgeon and the director of the concussion program at the McGill Sports Medicine Clinic in Montreal.

Dr. Aubry, a sports medicine specialist based in Ottawa and Gatineau, has contributed to the research of spinal cord injuries and concussions not only in Canada, but internationally. He has been the chief medical officer for the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) since 1998 and Hockey Canada since 2004. Dr. Aubry is also a member of International Olympic Medical Commission. In addition to having served on medical staffs for Canadian national and Olympic teams, he is currently a team physician for the National Hockey League’s Ottawa Senators, the Ontario Hockey League’s Ottawa 67’s and the Ottawa Lynx triple-A baseball club.
