Hockey Day North Dakota is set to begin this Friday, January 21st in Jamestown, North Dakota and will wrap up on Saturday, January 22nd.  The games will take place on the University of Jamestown campus.  This is North Dakota's premier outdoor hockey event.

This year's schedule will feature four of our local teams including the Bismarck High Demons, the Bismarck Century Patriots, the Bismarck Blizzard, and the Bismarck Bantam AA boys team.  Both boys' high school teams will have very difficult games as they will each face one of the Grand Forks high schools.

Here's a look at the rink our teams will be playing on.

And yet another look at the making of the rink.
