Canada’s National Sledge Development Team to Face United States in Three-Game Series in Toronto, Ont.
March 26, 2013

CALGARY, Alta. – Canada’s National Sledge Development Team will face the United States’ development team in a three-game series, March 28-30, at the MasterCard Centre in Toronto, Ont. Admission to all three games is free.

The series is a follow-up to a training camp for the National Sledge Development Team held in Montreal at the end of February.

Canada’s National Sledge Development Team was created to help elite-level sledge hockey players not chosen for Canada’s National Sledge Team get an opportunity to get international experience with hopes of developing their skills for future national team duty.

Head coach Todd Sargeant (London, Ont.) will be joined on the bench by two former members of Canada’s National Sledge Team, with Hervé Lord (St-Pamphile, Que.) and Todd Nicholson (Kinburn, Ont.) serving as assistant coaches. Lord and Nicholson are two of Canada’s most decorated sledge hockey players – both played in five Paralympics and five IPC Sledge Hockey World Championships, and have close to 40 years combined experience with the national team.

NOTE TO MEDIA - Adam Crockatt, Hockey Canada’s manager of hockey operations/national teams, is on-site with the team and can assist with any media interview requests. He can be reached at
