I have been informed as most of you may be aware that North Dakota youth sports have been paused for the time being. North Dakota Hockey BOD met last night and agreed that they would suspend all youth Hockey under their jurisdiction until the state of ND allows them to resume. Please inform your associations that any teams presenting themselves as USAH/NDAH sanctioned teams are not currently sanctioned by NDAH. All teams from NDAH are now on pause and cannot play as a sanctioned USAH/NDAH team, playing a team from ND is playing a non-Sanctioned team and a violation of USAH/MN Hockey rules.
President MN Hockey
