The U.S. National Sled Hockey Team arrived in Ostrava, Czechia, just after noon local time (6 a.m. ET). Team USA's journey started on Monday (April 22), with players and staff convening in Newark, New Jersey, before the team's flight yesterday (April 23). The team flew direct from Newark to Vienna, Austria, where tournament hosts met Team USA and began a bus ride through the Czechia countryside.

Forward Kyle Zych (South Hadley, Mass.), currently enjoying his first season with the U.S. National Sled Hockey Team, has never traveled to Europe before while neither has assistant coach Corey Gorder (Bottineau, N.D.).
