Washington Ice Dogs A team will play their first game of the year against the USA Warriors on Saturday November 22nd, 8:00am at the Gardens Ice House.
The USA Warriors are a team comprised of wounded veterans who have served their country in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Ice Dogs players and coaches are very excited about the opportunity to play a fun and friendly game with these national heroes.
Max Maksimyadis, who plays goalie on the New York Raptors Special Hockey Team, will be the honorary guest goaltender for the USA Warriors. Max was selected as the recipient of the 2008 USA Disabled Hockey Athlete of the Year this past spring.
Immediately after the game, the USA Warriors will join Ice Dogs B team and developmental players for a practice. The USA Warriors players will serve as mentors helping Ice Dogs players learn the game.
