Hockey Passion Leads To New Purpose for Soldier With PTSD

This article is a bit of a reciprocal of the usual articles on this website as this one relates to PTSD(Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) in a non-hockey playing individual who now uses their involvement in hockey to help heal some of their past career life struggles and battles of being in the military and navy.

All I can say is that when I played hockey, I know how much the local hockey teams meant to the fans who supported them game after game and year after year and it’s an amazing feeling to know that you get to play in front of so many great people night after night and they don’t always get to know that our efforts on the ice are just as much for them as it is for ourselves down on the ice. And this article from CBC is another great story to showcase how sports and hockey can have a positive impact on a persons life in one capacity or another.
