St. Paul, MN – February 25, 2021 – Minnesota Hockey today announced several schedule and location changes for Region and State Tournaments, which will be held in March. In December, the Minnesota Hockey Board approved an extension of the Minnesota Hockey season due to the pause on youth sports from November 20 to January 4. This extension allows for the Region Tournaments originally scheduled to be held February 26—28 to now be held March 19—21. The State Tournaments, originally scheduled March 12 – 14 have been moved to March 26 – 28.
The changes created some scheduling conflicts in certain areas, which necessitated some changes in locations or timing of games played. The following changes should be noted:
