Lion Magazine recently featured Andrew Mead-Colegrove’s story about how he started playing Blind Hockey and at age 16, represented his country as a goalie for the US Blind Hockey Team. The article also discusses the start of the Buffalo Blind Hockey team and how Norm Page, who led the growth of sled hockey in Buffalo, helped start the program with his son Adam.  “Blind people haven’t had a chance to play hockey before,” Norm says. “This gives them an opportunity to participate in a great sport. We can’t get out there quick enough to give these athletes an opportunity, get the word out there, and get these programs built. We’ve done it before and we can do it again.”
