The Gustavus men’s hockey team is set to take on St. Olaf College in the MIAC Playoff Championship game on Saturday night at 7:05 p.m. in Don Roberts Ice Rink.  Head Coach Brett Petersen, senior captain Ross Ring-Jarvi, and the rest of the Gustavus men’s hockey team have issued a challenge to all Golden Gustie fans to wear white to Saturday’s MIAC Championship game in an attempt to cause a ‘White-Out’ at Don Roberts Ice Rink.

No. 2 seed Gustavus earned a berth into Saturday’s championship after defeating Saint John’s 3-1 on Saturday, Feb. 25 in St. Peter.  No. 4 seed St. Olaf enters Saturday’s title bout with perhaps the most momentum of any team in the country.  The Oles are most recently coming off 4-3 upset victory over 2011-12 MIAC Champion and No. 1 seed St. Thomas on Saturday, Feb. 25 in Mendota Heights.  Gustavus enters the game ranked No. 11 in the nation at 15-6-5 overall, while St. Olaf comes in at 13-8-6 overall.

At stake on Saturday night, an automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament.
