Purple vs. Gold

The Minnesota State men's hockey team announced Monday that it will play an intrasquad scrimmage at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11 at All Seasons Arena. The Purple and Gold game will be a free event, and the first 500 MSU students to arrive will receive T-shirts.

If memory serves, this is the first Purple and Gold game since 2002. The Mavericks usually don't play the scrimmage if they have an exhibition game scheduled.

The last four years, MSU has started the season with an exhibition game against a Canadian college team. This year, they'll go right into the WCHA schedule with a series at Michigan Tech.

I believe the last Purple vs Gold game was at All Seasons just prior to the 2003 season. I was at that game, and I seem to remember them doing a skills competition as well as the scrimmage, such as setting up plates in the four corners of the goal and having the shooters see how many shots it would take to break all four.
