Johnstown Sitting Bulls Pack Sleds for Hockey Festival

Christina Dunmyer of the Daily American profiles the Johnstown Sitting Bulls, a novice youth team (first grade to 18 years old) whose first game at the festival will be against their fellow Pennsylvanians the Pittsburgh Mighty Penguins. Head coach Brian Buchkovich said, "Many of these kids wear braces on their legs because of Spinabifida or other aliments, but they can play other sports.
