Now in his second season with Team Canada, defenceman Branden Sison is focused on the upcoming 2022 Paralympic Winter Games. He made his world championships debut in 2021 helping Canada to the silver medal.

Sison was born without a fibula in his right leg (fibular hemimelia), resulting in an amputation below the knee. He grew up using a prosthetic and never let it slow him down when playing sports with friends.

At just 16 years old, in 2016, Sison was invited to Canada’s National Para Hockey Team selection camp. Though he didn’t make the cut, staff saw plenty of potential and asked Sison to keep working with them, which lead to a development camp in Montreal and a series against the United States.

And now, he is set for his first Paralympic appearance at Beijing 2022.
