Ice Warriors: USA Sled Hockey

Don’t miss WGBH’s new, 90-minute portrait of the US Sled Hockey team preparing for and competing in the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games. This is a game of force, speed, and strategy, as the US players take to the ice in Sochi, Russia, against the best athletes in the world. 

Ice Warriors: USA Sled Hockey

Premieres Monday, Nov. 10, at 10pm on WGBH 2

Their personal stories are inspirational, from a teenage double amputee making his debut, to four military “wounded warriors,” proud to represent America in Paralympic sports. Their goal: winning unprecedented back-to-back gold medals against the upstart young team from Russia and our strongest hockey rivals, Canada.

Strapped into molded sleds, they’re often playing at eye level with the fast-moving puck in this game of force, speed and strategy.
