Hockey: GNK heading outdoors for Hockey Day
The Greenway/Nashwauk-Keewatin boys hockey team will take part in Hockey Day Minnesota 2019, facing off against host Bemidji at 4:30 p.m. on Jan. 19 outdoors near Lake Bemidji.
Other outdoor matchups that day include a high school boys game between Minnetonka and Andover and a college women's WCHA game between Bemidji State and Minnesota State-Mankato.
Outdoor games will begin Thursday night with the Bemidji High School girls hosting Woodbury. A college men's WCHA game will be played Friday night with the Beavers hosting Michigan Tech.
This will be the first year Hockey Day Minnesota includes an outdoor men's game. Minnesota Duluth and St. Cloud State played the first outdoor women's game for Hockey Day Minnesota last year in St. Cloud.
