Minnesota State Hockey Tournament
The Minnesota State Hockey experience really is unlike any other, from the homemade signs to the shameless mullets. “It’s starting to grow on me a little bit so I might keep it,” St. Cloud Apollo’s Blake Theisen said. Like the players, fans take it all in.
The state hockey tournament is what every high school hockey player dreams about; a glorious tradition in the state of hockey. And it’s a tradition that the town of Luverne has never been a part of, until Wednesday. The town of 4,700 turned out in full, including Mayor Patrick Baustian, who led cheers instead of leading the government.
The top three seeds in the Class 2A Minnesota Boys State Hockey Tournament did what they usually do in the first round — win.
The Minnesota state boys hockey tournament begins on Wednesday and in Class A, Breck is back and taking on Marshall (14-10-1) to open it.
