Quinnipiac Hockey recruits special player

One the ice, it’s been an up and down season for the Quinnipiac Men’s Hockey team.. but, off the ice, the Bobcats did something a Cheshire family won’t ever forget.

Last week, the Bobcats “drafted” 11-year-old Michael Torello, who was diagnosed with Kernicterus as an infant. Bilirubin builds up in infant's brains that suffer from jaundice and they suffer brain damage.

Torello came to Quinnipiac Through Team Impact , a national nonprofit that connects children facing serious and chronic illness with college athletic teams.
