“Our team is excited to participate in the 2025 U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Game against another great college hockey program in Minnesota and at a great venue for our sport at Ball Arena,” said DU head coach David Carle. “Getting a chance to play at our home NHL rink in January 2023 against Colorado College was a highlight for our program and players that season. I know our team and all Pioneers are excited to do it again against another quality opponent in the Golden Gophers.”
