Kids across Minnesota can see what hockey is all about at Try Hockey For Free Day on Saturday. Seventy-three events are scheduled at rinks around the state. The events are aimed at welcoming boys and girls, ages 4 to 9, to come to a local rink and try youth hockey free of charge.
Minnesota hockey coaches and officials say temporary rules adopted to make the youth game safer do more good than harm and should be made permanent.
This weekend the family of Jack Jablonski announced a “grass roots” effort to change the game of hockey to make it safer.
