Paralympics Sled Hockey 2014

If you think hockey is a physical contact sport, try playing it without legs! Believe it or not, sled hockey players can skate just as fast as their able-bodied counterparts, and they actually hit just as hard as NHLers! The story behind the team hits even harder.

The Paralympics are underway in Sochi, Russia. PBS recently aired a very inspiring documentary that followed the USA sled hockey team called “Ice Warriors”. What a sport! Many members of the USA Hockey team are amputees, military veterans, and former youth hockey players. . . #usa #sledhockey. #veterans
