College hockey fans in Bemidji and Duluth are a little disappointed.
University of Minnesota Duluth officials have announced that a power outage at Amsoil Arena in Duluth has forced tonight's season-opener to be postponed.
The Bemidji Pioneer reports the status of Friday night's game had been in doubt since mid-afternoon. Power was cut around 2 p.m. Officials said a contractor bored into an unmarked underground cable at the arena.
The schools were scheduled to meet in a non-conference home-and-home series this weekend. Saturday's game at Sanford Arena in Bemidji remains on as scheduled.
