It's been an extremely windy afternoon here at Lake Nokomis as a massive cold front has moved into the region.
We've taken precautionary measures and closed the warming tent for a short period of time due to the strong wind gusts.
All games are ON for Saturday evening!... and we will be opening the warming just as soon as conditions improve.
In the very worst case scenario you'll just have to toss your skates on rink side.
That’s all for now, folks. Stay tuned for more updates from Pond Hockey Central soon!
Sport Ngin is the company behind the USPHC. We are a highly skilled team specializing in the execution of world-class sports content strategy, design, marketing and technology... and we LOVE hockey.
