DANBURY — Fox Nation will honor a Danbury police officer and assistant hockey coach who went viral over the summer for telling his players to respect the national anthem.

Sgt. John Krupinsky, the assistant coach for the Danbury Hat Tricks, will receive the Fox Nation Most Patriotic Sportsman of the Year Award at a ceremony in St. Petersburg, Fla. on Nov. 6.

In the viral video, Krupinsky tells his players to quit if they do not honor the national anthem

“We’re not women’s soccer, we’re not the NFL,” he says in the video. “If there’s anyone here who’s going to be disrespectful to either the American or the Canadian national anthem, then grab your gear and get the f— out of here now, because you’ll never see the ice in this arena.”

He appeared on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” shortly after the video surfaced.

The award show will air live on Fox Nation, as well as on Fox News on Nov. 24. Guests at the ceremony include conservative commentators Steve Doocy and Tomi Lahren, among others.
