With players locked out of team training facilities, finding ice time to work out is proving tricky. In Minnesota, they’ve got almost too many players that want in on the action.
Michael Russo of the Star-Tribune reports there are so many players working out together at St. Louis Park Center in Minnesota, they’re about to do their own version of beer league hockey.
[Today], refs will be hired so there are more structured scrimmages. Brodziak did say there are almost too many guys, it’s hard to get reps and that the Wild guys may eventually go on their own and rent their own ice.
In their video to the fans the players talked about growing up playing hockey on ponds. Teaming up together to pay for ice time at a local rink has some of that throwback flavor, too.
Now the real question: Who picks up the beer?
