Para Ice Hockey

The forward has arguably been regarded as one of the best players in the sport. As alternate captain, he helped bring Canada all the way to a fierce battle for gold against archrivals USA at the PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games. But Canada lost 2-1 in overtime.

At the 2017 World Championships A-Pool in Gangneung, South Korea, McGregor recorded 12 goals to tie as the tournament leader. That included a hat-trick during the gold medal game against the USA. His two goals in 17 seconds helped seal Canada’s fourth world title, and second since McGregor debuted on the national team.

Twenty-four years old at PyeongChang 2018, McGregor has come a long way since his international debut in 2012.

The Canadian had his legs amputated due to cancer in 2009. Even after having to endure the tough reality of never playing stand-up hockey again, McGregor was adamant that hockey would be in his future.

He made his national team debut at December’s 2012 World Sledge Hockey Challenge, where he recorded two assists in his first game, an 11-0 win over Japan.

The following year, McGregor was the youngest member on the Canadian team that won gold at the 2013 World Championships.
