After months, perhaps years of speculation, an announcement was made Tuesday afternoon confirming an outdoor hockey game at TD Ameritrade Park in 2013. On Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013 the Lincoln Stars will play the Omaha Lancers and the University of North Dakota will play UNO at an ice rink that will be constructed on the field of the downtown ballpark.
UNO's 5-2 victory Saturday night earned the Mavs a split in their final conference series at No. 11 Minnesota-Duluth and sole possession of third place in the WCHA. It's the highest conference finish the team has ever had in the 14-year history of UNO hockey.
