DU Road Trip To Minnesota This Weekend

(above) DU will play at the University of Minnesota this weekend


On Feb. 11-12th, 2011 the University of Denver hockey team will play the University of Minnesota in Mariucci Arena. The Denver Hockey Alumni Association is hosting a reunion of former players with events planned all weekend.

On Saturday a lunch will be hosted by Coach Gwozdecky for the hockey alumni, parents and DU fans. (RSVP & prepayment required).

Saturday is also Hockey Day in Minnesota 2011 with a series of games from pee wees to the pros planned across the state. The highlights include outdoor games in John Lee's hometown of Moorhead and DU vs. the Gophers that evening.

Once again a group of DU hockey fans will make the roadtrip to support the team and spread our own version of good cheer.

Just like last year's trip to Wisconsin, Boone and several DU students will fly to Minnesota to meet with alumni and support the team.

Are you sure you want to go? There might be drinking there. Hell, the players might even have a beer after the game. lol

Just bought my tickets to the WCHA Final Five! Really hoping DU makes it, but if not, they will be getting some well needed rest before the ncaa regional tournament and I will be chillin at home in Minnesota watching some good hockey for spring break!

FYI - Saturday is "Hockey Day in Minnesota".

So if you are in MSP for the game, you can watch a couple of High School games in the morning & afternoon on TV before the DU-UM late afternoon game.

Good! Hope they go up there and make some noise in Merry-Youchee. It's been a little frustrating hearing the visiting fans screaming in Magness Arena. In theory, the Pioneers should whip the Goofers. In theory, that is.....
