Tonya Harding to debut on hockey ice



Disgraced former U.S. figure skating champion and aspiring boxer Tonya Harding has a new goal: minor league ice hockey.

The Indianapolis Ice of the Central Hockey League announced this week that it has signed the 33-year-old Harding to join the team for its game Friday against the Colorado Eagles.

It has been 10 years since Harding's ex-husband hired a hit man to attack rival Nancy Kerrigan at the 1994 national championships. Harding has always denied knowledge of the attack, but pleaded guilty to conspiracy to hinder prosecution, was stripped of her 1994 national title and banned from amateur figure skating competition.
