Dozens of players participated in a little-known sport in memory of a South Bend athlete.
Sled hockey players from Michiana and bordering states competed in the Adam Milani Memorial Sled Tournament at the Ice Box.
Milani was a St. Joseph High School hockey player who was paralyzed after an accident on the ice.
Sled hockey is an opportunity for people with disabilities to play hockey using a specially-designed sled and shortened sticks.
“It brings a whole other level of love for the game and to see kids that don't have opportunities that they have to participate in a game that they love,” said Coach Jay Lewis.
