CALGARY, Alta. – Hockey Canada and the Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC) have announced that Tyler McGregor (Forest, Ont.), a two-time Paralympic medallist, will wear the ‘C’ for Canada’s Paralympic Hockey Team at the 2022 Paralympic Winter Games.

PyeongChang 2018 silver medallists James Dunn (Wallacetown, Ont.), Tyrone Henry (Ottawa, Ont.) and Liam Hickey (St. John’s, N.L.) will serve alongside McGregor as alternate captains. Dunn and Hickey will alternate wearing the ‘A’ throughout the tournament.

“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. “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.”

Canada’s Paralympic Hockey Team announced its 17-player roster on Feb. 15, and has been participating in a month-long training camp in Calgary ahead of the 2022 Paralympic Winter Games.
