Over the weekend, USA Warriors Ice Hockey visited Chicago where the Blackhawks hosted them for their Stadium Series game against the Penguins. Leann Altice, the sister of Warriors team member Chris Altice, went along for what seemed to be a very memorable visit.

"The team is made up of injured/disabled veterans from different branches of military and based in the DC/Maryland/Northern Virginia-area," Altice explained. "Its incredible the attitude the guys have towards life and the way they stay positive even when things don't happen the way they were supposed to... They are honestly the most amazing people I have ever met, and even after only a weekend with them, the way I look at things in my own life has completely changed."

Below are some very cool pictures that she took during the trip (including an impromptu visit to a WWE event):
