Snow and freezing temperatures have arrived in Minnesota, and that means one thing: hockey season is here. Hockey fanatics male and female are hitting rinks throughout the Land of 10,000 Lakes and surrounding states. Unfortunately, one collegiate hockey star from Minnesota will be sitting out this season due to injuries suffered in an auto accident.
The young woman in question had been a forward from a northern Minnesota town renowned for producing hockey players. After high school, she enrolled in one of the top hockey schools in the country. According to a local newspaper, the hockey player's pickup truck had stalled on a city street on November 17, and she was putting gasoline in the truck's fuel tank when her vehicle was hit by another vehicle.
