This weekend is the 13th Annual Hockey Day Minnesota. A few area prep teams and colleges will be involved. #12 Greenway will take on Bemidji. The two teams will battle it out this Saturday at 4:30 p.m.
In 2013, Nikolai Rajala was a part of hockey day when it was hosted in Grand Rapids. He says it’s one of his favorite memories.
“I don’t know, I was pretty young but, I remember there was a lot of people there obviously, having it on the Iron Range was pretty cool, just the people around there, a lot of fans obviously. It definitely something special, we are going to play like any other game, we are going to prepare like any other game. Obviously it is something more special than that.” said Rajala.
“It obviously is a great, honor and a privilege to be chosen to play in that game and I know our community and our team is really excited about it. They’re looking forward to it, looking forward to enjoying the experience.” said head coach Grant Clafton.
