Watch Now: Ice Warriors

For more than 5 months, ICE WARRIORS followed the U.S. sled hockey team on their road to the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. These remarkable competitors — experienced athletes and rookie players, high school students and military veterans wounded in action  — shared one goal: to make history with a repeat gold medal win.

Sled hockey, called “murderball on blades,” is played as aggressively as able-bodied hockey — but these players battle with their sticks, sharp sled runners and the serrated ice picks used to propel their sleds.  They fight it out at eye level with a fast-moving puck in this game of force, speed and strategy.
