Ford Ice Center Programs, Sled Preds Help Young Boy Thrive on Ice | NHL.com
“Looking back to seven months ago, Ashley Fowler and her family still can’t believe the difference the All Stars program and Sled Preds have made in their lives.
‘The truth is they told us Will might not ever even walk,’ Fowler said. ‘And now I look at him faster than I am and say, “I wonder what else he’s going to be able to do that they told us he wouldn’t.”’”

(Also, the 4-1 lead is still The Most Dangerous Lead In Hockey.)
