Number: 19

Travis would love to skate with the Russian 5. Larionov, Fetisov, Fedorov, Kozlov, and Konstantinov

What hockey means to Travis: I grew up playing hockey in the birthplace of professional hockey, Houghton, Michigan. Hockey isn't just a game, it takes a group of people and puts them through tough situations and the only way to come out successful is to work together.

What the Warriors means to Travis: The Warriors is just another way for us to get back that bond and comradery that we all miss from the military lifestyle. Being able to be the founder and president of this program and seeing how much joy it brings to everyone involved is all the motivation I need to keep working as hard as possible to bring more opportunities to the program.

Branch of Service/MOS: Air Force/Combat Controller

Birthplace: Fort Worth, Texas

Favorite NHL Team: Carolina Hurricanes

Number: 20

John is excited to be on the Warriors because hockey is a fellowship game and in hockey, games are won and lost because of teamwork. There's no bigger fraternity in the world than the US Military and teamwork is also a key component of mission success. Stack the two together and you have something more intimate and fraternal.

Gavin Hough

Favorite NHL Team: Carolina Hurricanes

Number: 33 - Because Patrick Roy was his hockey idol growing up

What the Warriors mean to Gavin: It’s unbelievable honestly. The only thing that’s been able to pull me back was the opportunity to skate with brothers in arms. It’s unspoken that any one of us would do whatever necessary for another. That’s a team.
