Steve Cash is one of the returning Paralympic gold medalists leading the 2018 U.S. Paralympic Sled Hockey Team for the Paralympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea.
The 17-player sled roster includes nine players with Paralympic experience, led by captain Josh Pauls (Green Brook, N.J.), alternate captains Declan Farmer (Tampa, Fla.) and Nikko Landeros (Johnstown, Colo.) and goaltender Steve Cash (Overland, Mo.). All four were members of the gold medal-winning 2014 Paralympic Sled Hockey Team.
“As a whole, this team has all the ingredients to be successful,” said Dan Brennan, director of sled hockey for USA Hockey and general manager of the 2018 U.S. Paralympic Sled Hockey Team. “We’re going to be a fast-paced, puck-moving team that is led by a great core of veterans who knows what it takes to win.”
The U.S. has medaled in four of the five Paralympic Winters Games it has competed in, with gold medals in 2014, 2010, and 2002 and a bronze medal in 2006.
All Paralympic nominations are subject to the approval of the U.S. Olympic Committee and U.S. Paralympics. The 2018 Paralympic Winter Games begin March 9 in PyeongChang, South Korea.
