Last week, five Boston-area players were guests at the Bruins-Senators game, which was a great opportunity to spread awareness of the World Deaf Hockey Championship and our organization, the American Hearing Impaired Hockey Association. We are grateful to the Bruins for their generosity, and for the fans whose support inspires us in our quest for the Gold!

In this photo from the Bruins game, courtesy of the Boston Bruins, are the Greater Boston representatives on the US National Deaf Team (from Left: Michael Wonoski (Beverly, MA/Proctor/Rochester Institute of Technology), Tony McGaughey (C) (Holbrook, MA/Northeastern University), Jeff Mansfield (Arlington, MA/Princeton University), Paul Malaney (Holbrook, MA), Michael Eastman (Boston, MA/Belmont Hill/Tufts)

Between March 30 and April 6, 2013, I'll be representing the United States in the World Deaf Ice Hockey Championships in Vantaa, Finland!  This year we are competing against four countries, including Finland, Canada, Russia, and Sweden, for the Gold, but we need your help!  


To support our efforts, consider making a contribution on this page.  Any contribution, no matter how small or large, will go a long way towards our goal of capturing the Gold!  

In 2007, we surprised the world by outclassing, outcompeting, and outworking our opponents en route to a Gold Medal in the Salt Lake Deaflympics.  Two years ago, we were relishing at the chance to defend the Gold at the Slovakia Deaflympics, but since the games were regretfully cancelled due to embezzlement by the Organizers, we never got the opportunity.  

This time, it's all systems go!  We are bringing a strong, young team with a good mix of veterans, and we have our sights locked on the Gold!

Funds raised on GoFundMe will help cover costs for airfare, meals, and lodging in Finland, as well as equipment and ice time.  Any funds exceeding the $1,000 target would also be a great asset to the entire team!

On behalf of everyone on the USA National Deaf Team, thank you for your generous support!

Jeff, for all I know we're distant relatives, but probably not. My younger brother skated and played with AHIHA years ago, so between the last name and the cause, I can't help but support your efforts. Skate hard, represent well, and have fun!
