Remy Peters, a respiratory nurse who has been splitting his time between the Peterborough Regional Health Centre and Sunnybrook Hospital throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, is named the winner of this week’s Frontline Worker Drop the Puck program. The Petes are celebrating frontline workers who have gone above and beyond for their community during these unprecedented times.
At the beginning of the pandemic, Peters was spending most of his time at Toronto’s Sunnybrook Hospital, but slowly transitioned to Peterborough Regional Health Center due to the increased demand for respiratory nurses in the Peterborough area.
“Both Remy and his wife are frontline workers, and have been working tirelessly throughout the pandemic,” said Stephanie Phillips-Nopes, who nominated Peters. “Remy is a kind-hearted man and never complains about his job and has been through alot during the pandemic. He is a huge Petes fan and deserves a little bit of recognition for his efforts.”
Peters is the final frontline worker to be selected in the Petes Frontline Worker Drop the Puck program. Six front line workers will take part in the Petes ceremonial puck drop at the maroon and white home opener on Thursday, October 14 at 7:05pm. This game will also mark the first time the Petes and Peterborough Memorial Centre reveal the new, state of the art video board to fans.
