Sledge Hockey

My nephew plays sledge hockey. That is not him in the photo, it is one of the players that was having some fun on the ice at the end of the session. The sledge has skate blades on the bottom and the hockey sticks have cleats on the butt end to propel you along the ice. It is played by those who are differently abled. Otherwise sledge hockey is played like any other hockey game. I have watched a few times and I am impressed by some of the players. A few of the players can really skate and fire a puck. There is also a Canadian Olympic Team of sledge hockey players.
