Ice Warriors: USA Sled Hockey will be a portrait of the U.S. sled hockey team as they prepare for the Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. Sled hockey, also known as“Murderball on blades,” is played as aggressively as able-bodied hockey – but these players battle with their sticks, their sharp sled runners, and the serrated ice picks used to propel their sleds. Strapped into molded sleds, they’re often playing at eye level with the fast-moving puck. It’s a game of force, speed and strategy.
Ice Warriors - USA Sled Hockey airs on Monday, February 24th at 9:00 p.m.
