Minnesota is Wild About Disabled Hockey!

Disabled hockey took the spotlight tonight in Minnesota. Before a preseason game between the Minnesota Wild and St. Louis Blues, USA Hockey held a press conference with Minnesota Hockey, the Schwan Super Rink, and the Wild to officially announce the seventh annual USA Hockey Disabled Festival. The national festival will be held April 1-3, 2011, in Blaine, Minn., and will feature all four disciplines of disabled hockey -- deaf/hard of hearing hockey, special hockey, sled hockey, and standing/amputee hockey.

Disabled hockey participants were featured throughout the game, including a flag bearer, Let’s Play Hockey, program sellers, a special hockey game, and a sled hockey game. Read more from the Minnesota Wild's website.

Thanks to the Minnesota Wild, Minnesota Hockey, and all the festival volunteers for their tremendous support of disabled hockey.
