Hockey Day in Minnesota was a great event just over a week ago in Saint Paul, but unlike previous years, there were no celebrated out-state games in 2015! To help "fill in the gap" for our deserving communities, we've come up with the idea of Hockey Day in Central Minnesota! With support from the Granite City Lumberjacks & Bernick's, we will celebrate hockey at all levels with special events on February 6th & 7th. Think about it...all the excitement of youth, high school, college, junior, and adult hockey all in a 24+ hour period right in the height of the season!
