Some might say a hockey coach isn't too far off from a drill instructor.  A group of wounded veterans can now make that comparison, after Minnesota Wild coach Mike Yeo ran the Minnesota Warriors through a practice.

Yeo drew up drills, pushed the pace and treated the two-hours at the "X" as if he were coaching his own Minnesota Wild players.

The Warriors are a hockey club comprised completely of veterans with some degree of battle-related injury.  They have veterans from as far back as the Vietnam War, to servicemen and women just back from the field.
