Watch Walleye sled hockey Tuesday, November 7
October 17, 2017
Toledo Walleye players will be taking to the ice at the Huntington Center on Tuesday, November 7, for a sled hockey exhibition with the ASPO Walleye Sled Hockey team. Admission is free for this event.
The event will be held from 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. to highlight the amazing abilities of local hockey players who overcome challenges to enjoy the game they love through the Adaptive Sports Program of Ohio.
In sled hockey, players use 2-to-3-foot-long sticks with spikes on the ends to push their sleds as well as to shoot and pass the puck. It’s open to athletes with amputation/limb loss, spiral cord injury, wheelchair-users and those living with cerebral palsy, brain injury and stroke.
The ASPO Walleye Sled Hockey team is a previous recipient of a Walleye Wishing Well grant which helped to purchase sled hockey equipment.
Donations can be made at the door on November 7, with all proceeds to benefit the Adaptive Sports Program of Ohio.
