RICHFIELD, Minn. (KMSP) -

Sled hockey is a sport for disabled athletes who do not have legs or are unable to use them. Players sit on sleds and use two hockey sticks with metal picks on the ends to propel the sled.

The Minnesota Northern Sled Hockey team, based in Richfield, Minn., is full of inspiring athletes:  an Iraq war veteran, a teenager who chose to have his legs amputated in his fight against cancer and a 17-year-old girl who also plays on the U.S. Paralympic basketball team.

Minnesota Northern Sled Hockey is a non-profit organization. For more information about the sport and the team, visit www.mnnorthernsledhockey.org
