PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) --Flyers rookie defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere paid a special visit Thursday to the Folcroft Police Department to meet officer Christopher Dorman.
"It's fun to come down here. What he's been through the last week, I'm sure his world has been flipped upside down. If we can take time out of our day to lift his spirits a bit, get him into some orange and black, and make him look really good now," Gostisbehere said.
Gostisbehere presented Dorman, who survived being shot seven times, with his own Flyers jersey.
The Flyers rookie said Dorman is a true hero.
"When you look at a role model, people see hockey players and athletes, but we see police officers, firefighters. To see what he's going through now and see how much of a warrior he is, this guy is walking around right now and it was a week ago. It's pretty amazing and I 'm pretty sure kids are going to be looking up to him," Gostisbehere said.
The Folcroft officer said it was awesome to meet the Flyers player and his jersey was a perfect fit.
