In Minnesota, it’s not uncommon to see former NHL players now coaching. That’s the case this season at Elk River.
Saturday night, Elk River will play Edina as part of the Hornets’ holiday tournament. That means Tony “Sars” Sarsland will be behind the bench for the Elks, a place he has assumed there for 26 years. He is a hockey character who appreciates his livelihood every day.
