Honoring 2020 State participants

Qualifying for a Minnesota Hockey State Tournament is an incredible accomplishment. It’s the ultimate goal of countless teams at the start of each season, and it’s the culmination of an incredible amount of effort to improve, teamwork, passion for the game and ability to overcome adversity.

This year’s teams were unable to complete at State, but nothing can take away the inspiring moments and memories made during their journey. Join us in honoring the Drive to State of all the 2020 Minnesota Hockey State Tournament participants because what they accomplished is special and deserves unique recognition during these unprecedented times.
