Advice from Josh Pauls for aspiring hockey players
"Watch a TON of hockey, especially the NHL. You pick up so many little things if you watch closely. Follow the position you play instead of the puck. Also, always give 150% in everything you do and NEVER give up. That attitude and work ethic will get you far in sled hockey, but is great for all aspects of life too."
- He was 10 years old when he was introduced to sled hockey.
- His inspiration came from his mother Deborah Pauls.
- Yes because of him having no legs, but he jokes around most of the time.
- He says “Its a feeling like no other. To represent my country on the biggest stage of the sport gives me such a feeling of pride and to bring home the gold especially at 17 was just awesome!”
