12/16 Green Visions: "No ice" ain't nice

Dec 16, 2015

It's probably no surprise that a hockey program here in Duluth is the last one in North America where the mite level practices exclusively outdoors.

In addition to being cheaper than renting indoor ice time, "pond hockey" is a whole, almost-forgotten culture.

But Old Man Winter's stubborn refusal to show up so far this season has been making it ... a mite tough ... on fledgling players and parents as well.
