Forest’s Tyler McGregor will lead Canada’s Paralympic hockey team in Bejing next month.

The three time paralympian has been named the captain of the team with James Dunn and Tyrone Henry – both of Ontario, and Liam Hickey of Newfoundland as alternates. The three were part of the silver medal team in 2018,

“I am honoured to participate in my third Paralympics, and I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as captain on a team with so many great leaders that are worthy of this accomplishment,” said McGregor in a news release from Hockey Canada. “James, Tyrone and Liam are exceptional players and leaders that are deserving of this honour.

“While our season has been one of perseverance, our entire team is excited to compete in Beijing and continue to work towards our goal of winning a gold medal for Canada.”

The team is on its way to Bejing now and will kick off its 2022 Paralympic quest March 5 against the US.
