Dan Robbins drinks water during a Zamboni break on the ice Saturday, Dec. 22, 2012 at Skatium in Fort Myers, Fla. The Southwest Florida sled hockey team, The Ice Bandits, is preparing to take on Canada in the coming days in Orlando. The team travels around the state and country competing against all classes and genders. Dan has been to Philadelphia this year and has picked up the sport shortly after completing physical therapy. In less than one year he qualified for the team in Feb. 2012 through USA Hockey. The team would go on to win their division for the season in early 2013. 'Undefeated is not about winning every game, it's about continuing to fight after a loss.' Robbins said. 'In all sports, games reveal character and good coaching builds character. I'm proud to say my hockey coach is tough but he builds good character in his players.'
