Sled Hockey GM on Growth of Disabled Hockey Festival

J.J. O'Connor, the general manager of the gold-medal-winning USA sled hockey team, says he's looking forward to the 2010 USA Hockey Disabled Festival, the largest ever.  "It happens all the time," O'Connor told USA Hockey. "Someone visits our Disabled Festival and is inspired to go out and join their local organization's team. And we're seeing higher levels of competition each year because of it....Our goal every year is to create an atmosphere that leaves a happiness with everyone in the facility. Plus, the more people that attend to watch and cheer on the athletes, the better they feel."  Read O'Connor's interview with USA Hockey.
