Buffalo (WKBW):

Roaring applause erupted at the Niagara University hockey game Sunday night for a special teenager battling a debilitating disease.
Doctors diagnosed 16-year-old Suneel Ram was with muscular dystrophy. Suneel had the honor of dropping the puck at the game against the University at Buffalo. Suneel is now an honorary member of the Niagara University hockey team. Players gave him his own jersey and say he's an inspiration.
