The 2014 U.S. Sled Hockey team won gold for the second consecutive paralympics in Sochi, Russia. It hadn't been done before in the relatively unknown sport, but sled hockey may not be under-the-radar for much longer. 

A new documentary "Ice Warriors: USA Sled Hockey" airs tonight at 9 PM on KLRN. It tells the story of a group of dedicated young men, some with congenital issues, some injured in accidents, and others wounded veterans, all of whom are striving to win gold.

Guests:

  • Jen Yung Lee, goaltender for the U.S. Sled Hockey Team. Only active-duty service member on current team. He plays for the San Antonio Rampage Sled Hockey Team.
  • Judith Vecchione, executive producer of "Ice Warriors."
