"My first Sabres game was at three year's old," Adam Page, 25, said. "There was just something about the game I loved to watch."

At the age of six, Page started playing sled hockey and 19 years later he is continuing his passion and reaching for the gold.

"I never even thought I would be going to one -- let alone three," he said.

Page is a Lancaster native and was born with hydrocephalus and spina bifida. His dad says he had 12 surgeries after he was born. 

"We didn't even know if he was going to live," Norm Page, Adam's father said.

Now Page has been on the national team for eleven years.

When Page first made the team, he was the youngest player at only 15-years-old. In 2010, Page made his first paralympic team. 

"It never gets old. It will never get old," Norm Page said.
