Pierre Pichette

Pierre began his career in 1988 as a goaltender in the sledge hockey team. Born in Lachine, Montréal, in 1954, he competed for about 13 years in sledge hockey, helping the sport to develop in Canada.

During his career, Pierre won several awards as “best goaltender”; in 1988 at an Ottawa International Tournament, in 1991 in Québec’s provincial tournament, in 1992 at the Laval Interprovincial Tournament, in 1994 at the Lillehammer Paralympic Games, in 1998 at the Nagano Paralympic Games and in 1999 at the Salt Lake City’s World Cup.

Pierre competed in several local, provincial and international competitions. He helped the team win the bronze medal in 1994 at the Lillehammer Paralympic Games, and the silver medal at the Nagano Paralympic Games. At the 2002 Salt Lake City Paralympic Games, the team did not finish on the podium but ended well with a fourth position.

Pierre lives in Longueuil, Québec, and he truly aspires to build and promote the beautiful sport of sledge hockey in his region.
