PowerHockey Cup Coming To Saint Paul
Minnesota earned the name, State of Hockey, because the sport is embraced at all levels throughout the state, including PowerHockey, which is an aggressive sport played in a power wheelchair using a ball rather than a puck.
The PowerHockey Cup, which features some of the best wheelchair hockey players in North America, is coming to The Legendary Roy Wilkins Auditorium in Saint Paul July 21-24. The event is free and open to the public. The PowerHockey Cup is a bi-annual event that allows the athletes to compete against the best wheelchair hockey teams in the country. The two-time champion Minnesota Saints will look to defend their title against seven teams from North Carolina, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Canada as well as in-state competitor Minnesota Selects.
PowerHockey’s mission is to provide a quality hockey program for persons requiring the use of an electric (power) wheelchair in daily life. Learn more about PowerHockey, here.
