Sled hockey, also known as sledge hockey, is the fast, exciting, rough-and-tumble version of ice hockey played primarily by people with lower limb mobility impairments. The game isessentially the same as “stand-up” ice hockey, the major difference being that the players use a sled with two hockey skate blades mounted under a seat.

The NESHL is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization established in 2005 as a means for regional Sled Hockey teams to engage in competitive, sportsmanlike hockey. We are the first-ever organized, multi-state, adult sled hockey league in the U.S, with Teams from Connecticut, New Hampshire, New York, New Jersey, Western Mass, Maryland, Vermont, and Pennsylvania currently in our league.

THE 2016 CAMMER CUP IS AN ANNUAL FUNDRAISING GAME FOR THE KNIGHTS ORGANIZATION!
The Knights take on THE CHARTER OAK Men’s League team in a charity fundraiser that will be held at AMELIA PARK ARENA on Saturday, March 19, 2016. The game is held in honor of their late teammate, Alex Camerlin. The event will raise funds to keep the Knights & their junior team, the Jr. Knights, on the ice. Tickets will be available soon.
