From CBC Ottawa:

Even before he lost the use of his legs in a car crash, Ottawa’s Tyrone Henry was intrigued by sledge hockey.

Eight years after that crash, he’s one of 20 players vying to suit up for Canada’s sledge team at this year’s Paralympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea… He won gold with Team Canada at the 2017 World Para Ice Hockey Championships. The Paralympics’ rules will allow 17 of the 20 players who were on that team to play for Canada in Pyeongchang.
