Minnesota Hockey’s Region Tournaments will expand to feature 35 tournaments at 29 locations across Minnesota this season as teams look to qualify for State. The Minnesota Hockey Board of Directors voted at its 2019 Summer Board meeting to approve the expansion of the 12U A and 12U B classifications to a four Region format in recognition of the impressive growth of girls’ hockey in the state.
The Metro Hockey League playdowns, which determine Junior Gold State participants, will take place at the Plymouth Ice Center in Plymouth. The 15U B Region Tournaments will be added if needed later this season. The Minnesota Hockey Region Tournament locations are as follows:
