The Ukrainian pee-wee hockey team


From the cold of Canada’s Quebec city, there is a first at the International Pee-Wee Hockey Tournament, a team of refugees from the war in Ukraine. The team trained back home as bombs fell and even skated in the dark. NBC News’ Jose Díaz-Balart speaks with the young players and witnesses an emotional moment on a video call between one of the team players and his father, who is fighting on the front lines.
