According to the account on Inside College Hockey, representatives from the University of Minnesota were taking notes:
Facilities officials from the University of Minnesota were on hand Saturday getting a first-hand look at how the rink was put together and how to smoothly run an outdoor hockey event. Marc Ryan, one of Minnesota’s associate athletic directors, told INCH this week that the Golden Gophers are in the advanced planning stages of hosting a similar event at the new 50,000-seat TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis next season.
Here's hoping the U decides to bring back some form of the WCHA Minnesota Showcase from a couple of years ago (when MSU took a home game to the Xcel Energy Center) and invites Minnesota State, St. Cloud State and Minnesota Duluth to play, too. Make them league games. Make them count. Sounds like a great day for hockey.
