They are promoting this weekend at UAF: “Throwback Weekend”, as the University of Alaska Fairbanks takes on Minnesota State University at the Patty Ice Center on campus.
It’s been three years since Alaska has played a D-1 game at the Patty Center. This year with MSU having a conflict with their Verizon Center and the Carlson Center here in Fairbanks being booked with the Alaska Federation of Natives Conference, the hockey games have been moved to the campus rink, the original home of the NCAA Nanooks.
This year begins the celebration of the University of Alaska’s 100th Anniversary, and the University is starting that kickoff with the hockey team returning to campus to play the #9 ranked Mavericks of Mankato.
The puck drops at 7:07 both Friday and Saturday evening. Tickets are extremely limited.
