Anthony Duckler: Shock player finally


Anthony Duckler was moved by the photo of a little boy holding a stuffed bear.

In the winger’s Twitter feed was Musa Siddiki, who was showcasing his new bear dressed in hockey gear. The 6-year-old named him Duclair, Musa told his father Imran, “because he is brown and plays hockey like me.”

After proudly showcasing his teammates in the Florida Panthers dressing room, Duckler invited Siddike’s family to the game and presented Musa and his older sister Aile with a signed stick and puck. When Musa participated in Florida’s “Learn to Play” program in June, he met a real Panther teddy bear. “Any such story touches your heart,” Duckler said. “I hope it will affect a couple more children from minorities and make them play hockey, sports, than they want.”
