This Sunday, hockey fans can not only check out a battle between Lake Superior State and Team USA, but they can also meet four gold-medalists from the 2018 U.S. Olympic Women’s Ice Hockey Team, as well.
Amanda Kessel, Hannah Brandt, Nicole Hensley and Farmington Hills’ own Megan Keller will be in attendance for the NTDP Under-18 Team’s latest battle in their 2018-19 college series.
The Women’s Team members will take part in a ceremonial puck drop prior to the 2 p.m. ET contest, and then participate in an autograph and photo opportunity with fans starting during the first intermission.
Ticket info can be found here.
