Gulls In Flight: B.J. MacPherson

He’s one of the greatest and most respected names in the history of San Diego Gulls hockey, and his back-breaking but heartwarming story takes center stage on this week’s edition of Gulls In Flight, your San Diego Gulls Hockey Club podcast! Join Craig Elsten, the voice of the Gulls, as he is joined by B.J. MacPherson not once but twice for Gulls In Flight #6. First, Craig and BJ don their play-by-play and analyst caps to discuss last week’s three-game homestand, including a big win over Bakersfield, a pair of tough losses to San Jose, and a couple critical call-ups to the Anaheim Ducks. Then, Craig talks to B.J. at length about his personal story, starting from the streets of Toronto as the youngest of six children and ending with three Taylor Cup championships in San Diego. But, May 4th, 2001 is the day B.J. and Gulls hockey fans will never forget, the day his neck was broken on the ice in a horrific collision that left MacPherson paralyzed from the neck down during his team’s championship series against Idaho. Doctors that night told B.J. he would never walk, have children or breathe on his own again; he was at the Sports Arena to attend Game 7 in person [although it almost killed him]. B.J.’s tale of triumph, tragedy and recovery is one you cannot miss! ​
