As a promising 15 year old midget AAA hockey player. Paul “Rosey” Rosen had his dreams of making the National Hockey League. During a tournament in 1975, Paul caught his skate in a rut in the ice and broke his leg in 14 places – simultaneously shattering his dream of playing professional hockey. For the next 24 years, Rosey endured surgery after surgery to repair his leg. It was 1999 that doctors warned Rosey, it was either his leg or his life. With no hesitation, Paul had his leg amputated above the knee on the same day.

After an inspiring meeting with a young amputee during rehabilitation, Paul decided to dedicated himself to sport and became a 3-time Paralympian, winning Canada’s first gold medal in Sledge Hockey at the 2006 Paralympic Games in Torino. He has since devoted himself to inspiring Canadians to realize their own potential – to share his story and his heart.
