COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A nonprofit wounded veterans hockey team from Colorado Springs was invited to the National Hockey League (NHL) Stadium Series last month.

The Colorado Warriors were one of four all-veteran hockey teams who were selected from the 200 teams that applied. The Warriors were back at Ed Robson Arena this week to take on the Pikes Peak Defenders.
