What Is Power Hockey?

2018 Powerhockey Cup logo

The sport of ice hockey is internationally popular. There is also a lesser-known but related sport called power hockey, which consists of people who use power wheelchairs playing hockey.

Unlike ice hockey, power hockey is played on a gym floor. and uses a plastic ball rather than a hockey puck. The hockey sticks used are made entirely from plastic. Check out for more on the sport, including a brief video.

The 2018 Powerhockey Cup will be played July 10-13 at the USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth, Michigan (the ice presumably will be removed!). Teams from Minnesota, Michigan, Ottawa, Toronto, and Philadelphia will compete in the tournament.

To watch the livestream of the tournament, go to the 2018 PowerHockey Cup Facebook page. Good luck to all of the participants!
