DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) -- WAND Sports is spotlighting a different aspect of the Decatur Blaze hockey team each week leading up to a homestand.
In Episode 4 of "Meet the Blaze", Mark Pearson takes us inside the secret "dojo" created by Zac Pearson, the owner/GM/coach/founder of the Blaze who started the franchise six years ago.
From exercise equipment to game film to lockers, the team headquarters has everything the team needs to succeed.
