Hockey Day Minnesota
Saturday, Jan. 18 at Handtke Pit, Elk River
Cloquet vs. Rochester Lourdes, 10:15 a.m
Stillwater vs. No. 8 Elk River, 1 p.m.
For the second straight Saturday, outdoor hockey takes center stage in Minnesota. This weekend it’s the annual Hockey Day Minnesota tilt at the historic Handtke Pit in Elk River. Will it be the frigid nastiness of last year’s games in Grand Rapids? Or the drippy heat waves of Moorhead’s and Minnetonka's recent efforts? Either way, expect plenty of attention when Cloquet/Esko/Carlton faces Rochester Lourdes and Stillwater takes on host Elk River.
