There is a unique hockey tournament in Suburban Detroit.

Every player on the ice was legally blind.

The goalies are completely blind.

It looks like a normal game, with the speed, precision and accuracy all there.

The players say other senses take over in the game.

"It's incredible, I'm still in awe of these goalies, they're making pad saves, they're making blocker saves, I mean it's great the rule where you have to make a pass before you can shoot probably helps."

The series at the USA Disabled Hockey Festival in Fraser, Michigan, aims to promote and grow disabled hockey throughout the country.
