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
