Diabetes and the Pro Hockey Player

The National Hockey League may be experiencing a labor lockout at the moment but that doesn't mean professional hockey has come to a halt in North America.

In fact there are several professional leagues up and running right now, including the top affiliate to the NHL, the American Hockey League.

I've been a fan of the American Hockey League's Texas Stars since they came to town in 2009, and we've seen a lot of players come and go over the years.

One of the Stars' top bloggers, Stephen Meserve, who covers the Stars at his blog Hundred Degree Hockey recently drew some great attention to two players currently on the Texas Stars roster, both of whom have type 1 diabetes: rookie Taylor Vause and veteran Toby Peterson.

His article was picked up by the American Hockey League's website, and is a great read, especially for young people worried that having diabetes means they can't play sports.
