MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) — The Minnesota State Mavericks men’s hockey series against Michigan Tech this weekend has been rescheduled, according to officials from MSU’s Athletics Department.
The series, originally scheduled for Dec. 4-5 in Houghton, Michigan, will now be played Sunday and Monday. The opening face-off for each game is scheduled for 6:07 p.m. ET Sunday and 5:07 p.m. ET Monday at the John MacInnes Student Ice Arena.
Neither team addresses the reason for the rescheduling in statements released to their respective websites.
