Eleven members of the gold-medal winning 2014 U.S. Paralympic Sled Hockey Team will be a part of the 2015 U.S. National Sled Hockey Team, USA Hockey announced Wedneday.
The roster includes two local players who have become Team USA staples: Adam Page of Lancaster – who has won two gold medals – and Buffalo native Paul Schaus.
The squad was selected following a two-day tryout last weekend in Williamsville, N.Y. From 52 hopefuls who attended, the U.S. pared down the roster to 17 players.

Schaus joined Sabres Hockey Hotline in March to talk about winning gold in Sochi. You can listen to the interview here starting at the 22-minute mark.
The 2015 International Paralympic Committee Ice Sledge Hockey World Championship will be hosted by USA Hockey at HARBORCENTER in Buffalo, N.Y. The tournament will run April 24 to May 2. The rest of Team USA's schedule will be released at a later date.
