Chicago Blackhawks prospect Kevin Korchinski has made a statement in support of the Western Hockey League's (WHL) Pride movement by wearing rainbow tape on his socks during a recent game. The Pride movement is an initiative that aims to promote inclusivity and diversity in the sport of hockey.

Korchinski's decision to wear the rainbow tape demonstrates his commitment to creating a more welcoming and accepting environment in hockey. This is not the first time Korchinski has shown his support for the Pride movement - earlier this season, he participated in a video campaign promoting the initiative.


The WHL's Pride movement has gained significant traction in recent years, with several teams and players participating in initiatives to promote inclusion and diversity. By wearing rainbow tape on his socks, Korchinski is sending a powerful message of support for LGBTQ+ individuals in the hockey community and beyond.


Korchinski's actions highlight the important role that athletes can play in advocating for social change. As a young prospect with the Chicago Blackhawks, he has shown that he is not only committed to his sport but also to making a positive impact on the world around him.
