The Pal’s talk to Tyler McGregor about The Paralympic Games, sledge hockey, and Terry Fox Charity Initiative.

Tyler, like many Canadian boys grew up with dreams of one day playing in the National Hockey League. At age 15, Tyler was already playing AAA hockey, the highest level in able-bodied hockey for his age.

However, following a leg injury in a hockey tournament, it was discovered and diagnosed that Tyler had spindle cell sarcoma. As a result, Tyler’s left leg would have to be amputated to save his life.

Rather than let this setback his life, Tyler began playing Sledge Hockey the next year, quickly emerging as a national star.

Transitioning from life as an able bodied high-performance athlete, to becoming a single-leg amputee, forced to completely re-envision his life and dreams, Tyler admits that it took him a year to fully come to terms with his new normal.

Now, a 2x Paralympian and World Championship Gold medalist, Tyler McGregor finds himself as Team Captain of Canada’s National Sledge Hockey team, and recognized as one of the sport’s best in the world, with hopes of leading Canada to Paralympic Gold in 2022.
