An early start to the flu season has claimed its latest victim: collegiate hockey. Minnesota State University-Mankato cancelled its Saturday home game against Princeton because several players are out with the flu. The game will be recorded as “no contest” and not a forfeit because it was cancelled due to illness.
It’s been a season of heartbreak and hope, adversity and achievement, stunning in both the worst and best of ways. And it’s not over yet for Minnesota State, Mankato.
Their season is one for the record books. Minnesota State University-Mankato is now 11 and 0. But this success hasn’t been easy.
