Personal: Always a hockey fanatic, Yohe was a roller hockey player for the Bettendorf (Iowa) Young Guns before losing both legs in an accident in 1994. Yohe was run over while trying to jump onto a train. In 2003, he got back into hockey when he joined the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC) Blackhawks, where he immediately showed his scoring touch. Yohe was a member of Team USA in 2006 and helped the team win a bronze medal at the Paralympic Winter Games in Torino, Italy. Excited to compete again four years later, Yohe helped the U.S. capture the gold medal at the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games in Vancouver, Canada. After the Vancouver Games, he took a three-season hiatus, but returned and became team captain of the 2014 U.S. Paralympic Sled Hockey Team....Married Katie Yohe in 2007…Has two children, Abby and Levi…Has two brothers, Kyle and Tony…Hobbies include spending time with family and friends, hand cycling, boating, golfing, watching football and hockey
