Meet Madison - a sweet, hockey-loving girl from outside of Pittsburgh! In addition to watching hockey, she loves playing the NHL video game! We had a great idea for a match for Madison -- Dan McCoy, a Paralympic sled hockey world champion, gold medalist, and MVP!
Madison and Dan hit it off right away. They bonded over their Pittsburgh roots and love of hockey. Dan is from Fox Chapel, and a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh. He told Madison about his experiences playing sled hockey and impressed Madison with his stories of playing with some of the Pittsburgh Penguins! Madison loved her Pittsburgh Penguins even more when she learned that Sidney Crosby got in a sled to learn what it was like to play like Dan! The best part was when Dan let Madison try on his gold medal!
Dan is hoping to get Madison out to the rink someday soon so that she can try sled hockey for herself!
