College Hockey goalie Jordan Sigalet has been nominated for an ESPY as "Best Comeback Athlete" for 2004-05.: Why? He's been diagnosed with Multiple Schlerosis, and still went on to become Bowling Green's all-time leader in SV%, as well posting the second-best ever GAA. New England Hockey Journal has a nice little article on him here.

I wish the best for the guy, and it would make a great story if he ever made it to the NHL. How many athletes have managed to make it to the pros while battling a degenerative disease like this?

I'm not saying it's in the same league but Tim Howard has Tourette's Syndrome.

Claude Lemeiux had a decent career in the NHL, without any internal organs...

JR has shown in the past few days that he may be missing some vital cognitive functions. Is 'asshole' a degenerative illness?
