Notes to Editors
About Blind Hockey
In 2018, Minnesota Hockey, in partnership with the Minnesota Wild, announced the launch of Minnesota's first-ever blind hockey program. Blind Hockey is the same exhilarating, fast-paced sport as ice hockey, with minimal rule changes to adapt with game for players who are legally blind and ensure player safety. The most significant modification is the sport features an adapted puck that makes noise, and is both bigger and slower than a traditional puck.
