It was an amazing night for Johnstown native Ethan Buchkovich. The 19-year old member of the Sitting Bulls Sled Hockey team was a guest of the Pittsburgh Penguins “Hockey is for Everyone” night at PPG Paints Arena.
The Challenged Athletes Foundation surprised Ethan, who has spina bifida, with a brand-new hockey sled before the Penguins’ game with the San Jose Sharks Thursday night.
“I was shocked. It’s still setting in,” Ethan told the Penguins’ website. “This was amazing. Sled hockey is my life,” he continued.
Ethan was also honored with a special video on the arena scoreboard.
