University of Minnesota Duluth

The University of Minnesota Duluth Men’s Hockey Team supported Defending The Blue Line® by wearing camouflage jerseys and autographing them during warm-ups on Veteran’s Day, November 11, 2011 before their WCHA matchup against the Alaska Anchorage Seawolves.

The proceeds from the auction, which totaled about $9,000, will be used to hold a special summer hockey camp for kids in northern Minnesota in 2012. There is a big military population in the Duluth/Superior area that we are supporting through a variety of programs. Last year, with the help of the Stauber Brothers, United Heroes League hosted a 3 day camp for about 50 local military children. Now with the help of UMD we will be able to make next summers camp bigger and better than ever!
