Following the recent news from our very own Zach Sullivan, the club would like to say we are all extremely proud of you, Zach! You’re a role model for so many people, young and old, in the sporting world. Someone knowing they can be themselves is a true testament to everything our club and sport stand for.
Following his inspiring message on social media earlier today, Zach had this to say, “I’m not doing this in the hope of any publicity. I’ve always been a very private guy, but I realise that I have a unique opportunity to do some good. If I can be open and honest about my sexuality, then hopefully that will give other hockey players around the country the same confidence to do the same.”
We also received a message from Manchester Storm Captain, Dallas Ehrhardt. “I’ve known Sully for a few years now and have got to know how great of a teammate he is, but more importantly, got to know him as an even better individual. He’s the kind of player who will do anything for the team whether it’s blocking shots or taking a hit to make a play, which goes unnoticed to those not in the dressing room. When he told the room, we couldn’t be happier for our teammate and we 100% have his back. The hockey world is a tight knit supportive community and when something as important like this happens, the whole sport gets better. Couldn’t be happier for Sully and look forward to battling with you on our playoff push.”
