Rochester Americans (2014)

Once again, the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League have voiced their support for the equality for all athletes, coaches, staff and fans, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

After releasing their first video in support of the You Can Play Project in 2013 (ADD LINK), the ‘Amerks’ took the initiative the emphasize that they are commitment to giving all athletes a fair opportunity to compete, judged by other athletes and fans alike, only by what they contribute to the sport or their team’s success.

You Can Play is proud to have one of the oldest hockey teams in the American Hockey League – which has won the Calder Cup six times – standing up once again in support of LGBT athletes.
