Hi my name is Courtney aka Jens95 and I love making hockey videos for fun. People ask why I picked the username and it's because when I first started YouTube I used my first and last name. When I decided to finally change it I decided to use Jens(shortened version of Jensrud) and my birth year which is 1995. I make $0 off the compilation videos, but it's all about having hockey videos out there to watch on a rainy day. If there are ads that appear on the NHL compilation videos you can thank the NHL for them. I'm very camera shy so any videos that include my face tend to be cringe filled. I also have personal gameplay footage of me being a sieve. I don't claim to be amazing at hockey whether it's playing EA's trash version or playing in real life. I appreciate people who take the time to roast my goalie skills... They don't call me the sieve queen for nothing!

Gold-medal full game| Ice sledge hockey | Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games
Josh Sweeney's second period goal was the difference maker on Saturday (15 March), as the USA repeated as Paralympic champions in ice sledge hockey after a 1-0 gold medal victory over Russia at the Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games.
With the win, the USA become the first-ever nation to win back-to-back Paralympic gold medals.
We have worked hard all year and this is a great group of guys. We're pretty excited and so we should be, USA captain Andy Yohe said.
After a fast-paced first period that saw lots of great chances at both ends of the ice, the teams were scoreless after 15 minutes.
The fast-paced game would continue in the second period with the USA dominating the flow of play. Finally, almost 10 minutes into the period, Sweeney, playing in his first Paralympic Winter Games, would steal the puck from Russia's Aleksei Lysov at the hashmarks and beat goaltender Vladimir Kamantcev.
That would be all the offence the USA needed to repeat their success from Vancouver 2010 and win their third gold medal in four Games.
With one goal, Sweeney turned from a war hero to a Paralympic hero. In 2009, Sweeny stepped on an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan as a member of the US Marine Corps, losing both of his legs.
In 2014, he led a Paralympic gold-medal winning team as an assistant captain.
I saw the defender, and he had the puck and I just went after him and I got the puck from him and took it down and did a little fake because that's what you want to do when you're going up against a goalie that good and just put it in the net, Sweeney said of his goal.
It wasn't anything that any of my other teammates couldn't have done, I just did it.
For Russia, the loss came after a rise in the sport over the last five years when the team first began training for their Paralympic debut. Since then, they have become the second best team in the world.
I'm not disappointed at all, Kamantcev said. We played well. It's a dignified finish for Russia and for ourselves. We showed a good game, a battle, intellect, will and character.
USA goaltender Steve Cash was brilliant when needed once again in net for his team, making six saves for the shutout, his second straight and third in the tournament.
Cash finished Sochi 2014 as the top goaltender, with a 4-1 record 0.41 goals against average and 95.56 save percentage.
His counterpart in the game, Kamantcev finished the tournament as Russia's No. 1 goaltender and was a standout performer in net. In the gold medal game he made three saves on four shots but finished the tournament behind Cash with a 95.24 save percentage.

SLEDGE HOCKEY | SLED SETUP
So, I did the best I could with having a Rev Force 1 sled on hand. There are many other models of sleds available at to help you, and depending on your disability there’s a lot to consider in sled setup. But with these two sleds as an example, here are the main things you should focus on when trying to dial in your sled.
1. Proper length (Knees should generally be bent around 30 degrees (or 150 depending on how you look at it)
2. Proper height (So your knuckles just scrape above the ice surface)
3. Blade positioning, front to back (Finding the balance point of your sled so your nose is off the ice)
4. Bucket angle (Depending on your disability and what’s comfortable for you)
I touch on stick length as well which is really important. Most players have sticks that are too long vs sticks that are too short.
Sticks that are too long means:
1. You’re ending your stride early and/or you’ll be choking up on your sticks a lot (Hands not at the top of the blades)
2. Proper length (Knees should generally be bent around 30 degrees (or 150 depending on how you look at it)
3. You’ll have to put more effort into your shot because of the long leverage point
Sticks that are too short means:
1. You end your stride too soon, not achieving a full stride and making you pick a lot more
2. You’ll have great acceleration but lack a better top speed
3. You’ll probably raise the puck easier and have a harder shot, but lack an overall ability to be more creative and pick corners, shoot from distances farther away, etc… plus it will affect your reach in battling in corners, stick handling, and how much more you can do with passing.
As things progress I’d love to do at least a few more of these videos on sled setup because there’s a lot of players out there that need help with this. If you have a specific question about your setup please leave me a comment and include a photo of you in your sled so I can see what you look like. I’ll do my best to help as many people as I can.
Hope you enjoy!

Canada v USA | Semi-final full game| Ice sledge hockey | Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games
China and Great Britain joined Russia and Canada in qualifying for the semi-finals following the lastl day of round-robin play in the Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games wheelchair curling competition.
The semi-finals were decided following Thursday's (13 March) final session of round-robin play, the two most significant results being Russia's win against Slovakia and China's victory over Great Britain.
Those results guaranteed the top four teams in the standings were Russia in first position; Canada second; China in third and Great Britain fourth.
As a result, Russia will play Great Britain in the one semi-final, while Canada will play China in the other semi-final on Saturday (15 March).
China, skipped by Haitao Wang, created their own history today as they became the first Chinese team to reach the semi-finals of the Paralympic Winter Games wheelchair curling competition, having only made their debut in the competition this year.
Their game against Great Britain was tight until Great Britain missed two take-out shots in the fourth end to give China skip Haitao Wang the opportunity to draw into an open house to score three points and take a 5-1 lead.
China then stole another point in the fifth end and although Great Britain picked up two points in the sixth and seventh ends, they conceded after seven ends of play with the final score 6-3.
Afterwards, China skip Haitao Wang looked towards the semi-finals. He said: We are much more excited now. Not as nervous, but excited. We were more nervous today than we were yesterday, but we are excited now because we are in the semi-finals.
On reaching the semi-finals, Great Britain skip Aileen Neilson said: It's really exciting. When we started the round-robin, our aim was to get through to the play-offs and we've managed to win enough games to do that, so we are absolutely delighted.
Russia guaranteed China and Great Britain's place in the semi-finals by defeating Slovakia, who were still chasing a semi-final spot of their own, winning 7-4.
On the back of an earlier record win, against Slovakia, Canada lost their final game of the round-robin to Finland, 12-1.
Sweden, meanwhile, finished off their round-robin campaign with a 13-3 win against South Korea, and earlier in the day beat Norway 11-1 and Canada defeated Slovakia 16-0.
The two other morning session games were a lot closer, with only one point splitting the teams.
Great Britain staged a late comeback against USA as they defeated them after an extra end.
Although USA were up 5-1 at the fourth end break, the key turning point for Great Britain came in the seventh end.
USA missed six shots in a row which gave Great Britain skip Aileen Neilson an open draw into the house to score five points and take a 7-6 lead.
After levelling the game in the eighth end with one point, USA skip Patrick McDonald was heavy with his last stone in the extra end which handed Great Britain their 8-7 victory.
South Korea meanwhile played out a tight game against Finland, only drawing level at 5-5 after six ends.
Korea then won the game in the eighth and final end when skip Jong-Pan Kim made a draw through a port to the four foot ring to score two points and win by 7-6.
The semi-finals begin at 9:30 (MSK) on Saturday followed by the medal games which will be played at 15:30 (MSK).

SLEDGE HOCKEY | HOW TO TURN
This is the beginning of a series of videos where I focus primarily on the fundamental basics of getting into the sport. Many of you may already be above these drills, but I wanted to get some content out there for people who know nothing about the sport.
The first video here is talking about turning with different blade widths. It’s very hard to learn how to turn and get onto your edge of your blades with 5” wide blades. Even on 3” it can be hard.
Here are a couple techniques and areas you can focus on:
- Find your proper set up. Adjust your sled for the proper length, and adjust your blade position so your sled is balanced properly with the front end hovering above the ice. You don’t want it to be dragging when you skate.
- Think about your hand placement on your sticks. If using your stick as a pivot point, you’re holding further to the top. If you’re dragging your sticks to turn helps, keep your hands low.
- Keep picking with your outside hand when turning. This will help you turn and keep your momentum up.
- Find the “happy medium” in your blade width. Where is it too wide that you can’t turn? How narrow can you go before you lose your balance and control of your sled?
Any feedback or ideas for future videos, please leave in the comments below!
Sled Hockey Shooting and Passing
Coaching Points :
- The longer that the puck is in contact with the stick the more accurate your shot will be. You can start even further behind you than is done in the video. And follow through with the puck in contact with the stick until your arm and stick are fully extended in front of you. You must flex your wrist to keep the puck properly aligned on your stick.
- Use as many muscles as you can. Use your core, drive your shoulder forward, use your shoulder, elbow and wrist joints extension to drive the puck. This increases accuracy and power.
- Your wrist bends the stick OVER the puck on final extension. And yes you can lift the puck while doing this. It is the most accurate way to shoot the puck.
- Do NOT allow yourself to get in the habit of scooping the puck onto your stick and flicking or throwing it toward the net.
- Head up and look at the target.
- This proper shooting motion is also essential to support proper passing (where the puck smoothly and firmly glides along the ice to the stick of the pass receiver). A saucer pass (where the puck rises off the ice and goes over the stick of an opponent) onto the stick of the receiving player is also done with this identical shooting/passing motion.
- Shoot (and pass) with both hands.
- Practice, practice, practice.
