Hockey City Classic Winter Festival to open

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A "Light the Lamp" ceremony will kick off the Hockey City Classic Winter Festival Thursday at TCF Bank Stadium.

Minnesota athletics director Norwood Teague, along with Gopher men's coach Don Lucia and women's coach Brad Frost, will shoot pucks into the net and "light the lamp," signifying the start of the 10-day festival. The ceremony is set for 5:30 p.m.

Fans will then have a chance Thursday to skate with former Gopher hockey players during the first "Skate With The Greats" charity event.

The festival wraps up with the 2014 Hockey City Classic on Jan. 17 at TCF Bank Stadium. The outdoor college hockey doubleheader will feature the Gopher women's team vs. Minnesota State at 4:30 p.m. and the men's team against Ohio State at 8 p.m.
