Brick Stars Player featured in NJ Devils Game Programs! - 2/6/15

Posted on February 06, 2015

The NHL’s New Jersey Devils have a monthly feature in their programs that are given to fans who attend their games at the Prudential Center. This month, the “Youth Hockey Spotlight” covers a very special player – one who plays for NJ Hero Alex DePalma’s Brick Stars Challenger Hockey Team.

Donald Petersen began playing hockey only four years ago. The 18-year-old from Ocean Township suffers from Asperger Syndrome, and for years struggled to have a social life and dealt with anxiety issues. After hearing about the Brick Stars Challenger program from a friend, Donald’s parents tried desperately to convince him to give it a try. When they finally convinced him to join the team, everyone was amazed at how much he thrived.

Donald’s feature in the game program of the NJ Devils is not only amazing for Donald, but for the Brick Stars Challenger Hockey Program as well. Donald’s inspiring story will be shared with everyone who enters the Prudential Center for a Devils game throughout the remainder of the month.
