3. MN Wild Diversified Hockey game  - Save the Date - Feb. 26th

Save the Date!  This season's MN Wild Diversified Hockey game will be February 26th, 2023.   It is a 1:00 pm Sunday game versus the Columbus Blue Jackets.   Please note that this is also a game day for most MSH teams.  More information will come soon and planning is still in the works.

4. Jersey Reminders

Please remember that a player’s jersey is strictly for a player and should not be worn by anyone else.  A jersey should not have signatures, added logos or anything of the sort.  Keep it looking brand new, and alterations are not allowed.

Players must routinely wash jerseys and clean equipment.  Make sure the white jerseys stay looking white, and air out your gear to keep it fresher between skates.  Here is some good information on how to clean hockey equipment:    Hockey Equipment Resource Center - How to Clean Hockey Equipment at Home | Pure Hockey

Amazon will unfortunately be shutting down its charitable Amazon Smile program in February.  But, your Amazon purchases can still benefit MN Special Hockey for the next few weeks!
