I'm so proud of fellow Canuck Voight Demeester, who plays defense for Penn State Nittany Lions ice hockey team, for how he handled being called a faggot during a game on December 8, 2016. The Woodstock, Ontario-born Demeester who is openly gay, told Outsports: "In the moment I was disappointed for the fact that they represent Penn State. But at the same time it fueled my fire in a way that drove me to play better the rest of the game. I started hitting a lot more because I wanted this ‘faggot’ to beat them."
Watch Voight share his story in the video below.
