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

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
