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.
