It was a story of two very different outcomes for the Blizzard last weekend as it lost 8-2 Friday in North Iowa and rebounded to beat Minnesota 8-0 on Saturday.


Alexandria’s Ian Ecklund had a huge weekend, scoring twice against North Iowa Friday and four goals against Minnesota on Saturday. Head coach Jeff Crouse said Ecklund was determined to have a good game on Saturday after the game got away from the Blizzard the night before.
