The event featured speeches from St. Cloud State President Robbyn Wacker, athletics director Heather Weems, men's hockey head coach Brett Larson and St. Cloud mayor Dave Kleis.

Among the remarks made and good luck wishes passed along to the Huskies, Kleis issued an official proclamation making Thursday (April 8) Husky Hockey Day in the City of St. Cloud. On Thursday and throughout the week, fans are encouraged to wear cardinal red to show support of the Huskies. 

St. Cloud State will face Minnesota State, Mankato at 4 p.m. Thursday on ESPN2 in the Frozen Four. The appearance in the Frozen Four is the second in school history for the Huskies, who reached the Frozen Four in 2013 when it was also held in Pittsburgh.
