Minnesota’s preeminent sporting event – the boys hockey tournament – gets started with sectionals next week. But nearly two dozen of the state’s best players won’t be playing in it, choosing to leave high school early for what they believe are better leagues. Others say they’re better off staying.
It’s a big day of hockey around the state. For the fourth year, Minnesota Hockey is participating in Try Hockey For Free Day. The event is designed to welcome kids ages 4 to 9 to lace up the skates and give hockey a try.
Minnesota Hockey is teaming up with Select Heartland Chevy Dealers of Minnesota. The partnership was announced Tuesday.
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.
