Penguins and Flyers urge Pa. congress to support the Willie O’Ree Gold Medal act

The Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers organizations urged all the members of the Pennsylvania congressional delegation, both Republicans and Democrats, to support the bipartisan Willie O’Ree Gold Medal Act. Since the American Revolution, Congress has commissioned gold medals as its highest expression of national appreciation for distinguished achievements and contributions. O’Ree, 85, made his National Hockey League debut in 1958 as a player for the Boston Bruins.
