NCAA Hockey Goalie Chris Truehl Is Literally Allergic To Ice


Here’s a story you probably didn’t expect to ever read: A college hockey player from Quinnipiac University is literally allergic to ice.

Quinnipiac goaltender Chris Truehl suffers from cold urticaria, which is an ice allergy that makes him incredibly sensitive to cold temperatures. Ideal for a hockey player? No. But that hasn’t stopped Truehl from doing his thing on the ice while dealing with cold hives.

Truehl revealed his condition in an interview with the university.

“You’ll see me skating around a lot, stretching my legs, moving my arms. If I start to feel my body stiffen, or my skin begins to tighten and feel uncomfortable, I absolutely have to,” Truehl said.

“I know. There is absolutely no shortage of irony there.”

Truehl discovered his condition when he forced to leave Air Force because his body was covered in frostbite after five days in rainy, 40 degree weather.

Now, he’s seeing playing time at Quinnipiac and overcoming the odds with a save percentage.

Yeah, we’re pretty impressed.
