pond hockey

It stands to reason that since Minnesota is the


that we would have a whole day dedicated to the sport. Saturday was "Hockey Day in Minnesota". There were all kinds of events held all over the state, including youth, high school, and NHL. And there was even some "Pond Hockey."


The 5th annual US Pond Hockey Championships were held this past weekend at Lake Nokomis in Minneapolis. There were over 1500 players, with teams from all over the country, Canada and England. Every year it seems to be getting bigger and better.

Unfortunately, the weather was not the best this weekend with temps in the high 30's and rain! (Yes, rain in January!!) But that did not stop Pete from taking Drew and a friend down to see a little bit of this fun event.
