On an 80-degree Duluth night, about 150 folks gathered at Amsoil Arena on Friday to remember the 2010-11 season and Minnesota Duluth’s hockey tradition. About 75 hockey alumni got together with the current team and others connected to the program for dinner and the presentation of NCAA championship rings.
The night honored the first Division I title in UMD men’s history. It was special enough to draw the school’s four Hobey Baker Memorial Award winners — Tom Kurvers, Bill Watson, Chris Marinucci and Junior Lessard.
