Spring Hockey Carnival Event Set for May 31

HOUGHTON, Mich. — Michigan Tech will host a Spring Hockey Carnival at the John MacInnes Student Ice Arena onSaturday, May 31. This free event for the whole family will feature games for kids, opportunities to interact with Huskies coaches and players and door prizes. The day also represents the final chance to purchase Tech season hockey tickets at the discounted price of $225.

The Spring Hockey Carnival will run between 4-6 p.m. with plenty to do. Youth are encouraged to bring their own hockey sticks and play floor hockey. Tech players will run skill sessions, and there may even be a chance to shoot against Huskies goaltenders.

All children will receive a free poster that they can have signed by Tech players. The locker room and other hockey facilities will be open to tour. A bounce house, video games on the arena’s big video board and music are also part of the evening.

Season tickets for Michigan Tech hockey purchased by the end of the Spring Hockey Carnival event are $225 apiece—$75 off the regular price of $300. Each season ticket guarantees a reserved seat for all 22 Michigan Tech home dates in 2014-15 (little more than $10 per game).
