sled hockey
 n.— «Fresh from the “What in the World Are They Doing?” department is a sport that was invented more than 30 years ago in Stockholm, Sweden, by a group of men who wanted to play a sport regardless of the challenges they faced. Sled hockey—or “sledge hockey,” as it was called back then—was born. As the name suggests, the game is a variation of ice hockey, played on ice, with nets, sticks and pucks.» —“Sled hockey speeds in” by Steve Navaroli York Daily Record (N.Y.) July 29, 2005.
