Featuring 16 teams representing 14 NHL franchises, the fourth annual USA Hockey Sled Classic enjoyed a record turnout as dozens of sled hockey players competed in three different divisions.

Presented by the NHL, the tournament saw the Buffalo Sabres edge the Dallas Stars 3-2 in a shootout in the A Division final and the Washington Capitals beat the New York Rangers 3-0 for the B Division title. The C Division was won by the Nashville Predators, who defeated the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1 in the final.

Hosted from Nov. 21-24 in Pittsburgh at Consol Energy Center, Robert Morris University Island Sports Center and Blade Runners Ice Complex, the tournament was part of the third annual Come Play Hockey Month, a joint effort between the NHL and USA Hockey.

Quote of the Day

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
