Defending Their Ice logo appears in large black text. The image also has skates on the ice on the right side of the graphic.

Produced by USA Hockey and RightHand, Defending Their Ice: The Story Of The U.S. Women’s National Team, gives viewers an inside look at how the top women’s hockey players in the world prepared to defend their world championship title on home soil. 

The 30-minute episodes dive into different aspects of what it takes to succeed both on and off the ice at the national team level and will offer a behind-the-curtain look at Team USA throughout the entirety of the 2023-24 season, starting from puck drop on game one of the Rivalry Series all the way to the final whistle of the Women’s World Championship in April. 

All six of the 30-minute episodes originally aired on NHL Network, and are now available to watch on USA Hockey's YouTube channel.
