Sabres Hearing Impaired Prospect Has Sights On The NHL

from Paul Peck of wivb,

While die hard Sabres fans may not know the name “Gregg Sutch” just yet, after learning more about him, it may be hard not to cheer the fifth round draft pick all the way to a roster spot with the blue and the gold.

Draft choice Gregg Sutch feels the game but he doesn’t always hear it. Gregg is hearing impaired, and has been for nearly all of his life.

“I can hear the crowd. I can hear the game, skating, the crash and all that. The finer things, the whistle kind of thing, somebody yelling for a pass in the middle of a loud crowd. Trying to pick that out, that’s the difficult part,” explained Sutch.

I think the one thing more amazing is that it was 80F at 11:16PM last night in Buffalo. It was cooler here in Atlanta at that time last evening (though not by much)!
