Three years ago Jim and Shana Perkins started the Capital City Condors, a hockey team for Ottawa area children with learning or physical disabilities. Before the Condors arrived in the nation's capital, children with special needs could only watch their brothers and sisters playing hockey - forced to sit on the sidelines with no team to call their own.

In that first season, Jim and Shana welcomed three children into the Capital City Condors family. Three years later, through the efforts of their tremendous volunteers and sponsors the program has grown to forty players with a waiting list that continues to grow. One of the dedicated supporters of the Capital City Condors program spoke with The Hockey Writers this week – Ottawa Senators defenseman Matt Carkner.
