Minnesota National Guard Hockey Town of the Week

Town of the Week

Welcome to the Minnesota National Guard Hockey Town of the Week. Each week, fans decided which Minnesota hockey town was the best out of three options. Our final winner of the year is Alexandria, Minnesota, a city with a population of 11,580 around 135 miles northwest of the Twin Cities. It is well known as the home of Big Ole, a 25-foot statue of a Viking constructed for the 1964 World's Fair in New York City. Alexandria is also home to an NA3HL franchise called the Blizzards, established in 2012. Alexandria's girls team has appeared in eight of the last 10 MSHSL State Tournaments.
