Second Annual Hockey City Classic Could Set Attendance Record
The Univ. of Minnesota will host the second annual Hockey City Classic Friday evening at TCF Bank Stadium. The event features a Minnesota-Minnesota State women's game, followed by an Ohio State-Minnesota men's game that will air on Big Ten Network. Event organizers Intersport are expecting a crowd of 45,000-50,000. That would easily eclipse the record for a hockey game in the state of Minnesota, set in '12 when 19,893 attended a high school playoff hockey at Xcel Energy Center (THE DAILY).
