Minnesota and Minnesota State will play in the annual U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Museum Women’s Face-Off Classic, scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 7, 3:30 p.m. CST, at the Dakotah! Ice Center in Prior Lake, Minn.
“We are thrilled to once again be playing in the Hall of Fame game versus Minnesota State,” said Minnesota coach Brad Frost in a statement. “We know the atmosphere will be great as Division I women’s hockey comes to a community arena in Prior Lake. We look forward to showcasing our great sport to the community of Prior Lake and the surrounding areas.”
The game will raise awareness for the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Museum in Eveleth, Minnesota along with bringing women’s Division I hockey to a local community.
