The 2022 Beijing Paralympic Winter Games will take place in Beijing, China from March 4-14, 2022.
The U.S. Paralympic Sled Hockey Team will enter the tournament after winning an unprecedented third-straight Paralympic gold medal, most recently by defeating Canada, 2-1, in overtime in 2018 in PyeongChang. En route to its gold-medal finish, the U.S. topped Japan (10-0), Czech Republic (10-0) and host Korea (8-0) in group play before defeating Italy (10-1) in the semifinals.
Guy Gosselin (Grafton, Wis.), served as head coach of the 2018 U.S. Paralympic Sled Hockey Team. Joining Gosselin behind the bench was assistant coach David Hoff (Bottineau, N.D.).
Forward Brody Roybal (Northlake, Ill.) was named Best Forward and Tournament MVP ahead of the gold-medal game and finished the tournament with 17 points, tying teammate and alternate captain Declan Farmer (Tampa, Fla.) for the tournament-lead. Farmer, who scored both goals in the gold-medal game, tied the U.S. and Paralympic records for most goals in a single tournament at 11, which was set by Sylvester Flis in 2002.
The United States has now medaled in five of its six Paralympic appearances (gold - 2002, 2010, 2014, 2018; bronze - 2006).
