Hockey Day for Delano grads

Delano products Abby Halluska and Brian Halonen will be in the middle of the action this weekend during Hockey Day Minnesota. Both will play in the college games, Halluska with the Bemidji State women and Halonen with the Michigan Tech men.

Delano cannot seem to get enough of Hockey Day Minnesota.

A year ago in St. Cloud, Katie Emmer served as Fox Sports North’s off-ice reporter during the event and then 7-year-old Kasey Bigham’s essay about having fun in hockey won the essay contest put on by the Hockey Education Program (HEP).

Emmer and Bigham are both from Delano.

This weekend in Bemidji, Emmer will, again, be behind a microphone for the 13th Annual Hockey Day Minnesota telecast. And, on the ice, two more Delano products will participate with their respective teams in the college games.

Friday night at 7 p.m., 2017 Delano graduate Brian Halonen will skate with Michigan Tech against Bemidji State in the men’s college game. The next afternoon, Saturday at 1 p.m., 2016 Delano graduate Abby Halluska will lead the Bemidji State women against Minnesota State Mankato.

These two games will be played on the rink constructed on Lake Bemidji.

“Being from Minnesota, it will be cool to play on Hockey Day. It’s a big deal in Minnesota,” said Halonen. “I’ve never had chance to do it in high school; this makes it special.”
