Hockey Player Confronts Gay Slur During Game (Watch Video)


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.
