Hockey lovers face off this weekend in the 2014 North American Pond Hockey Championship.
The weekend tournament kicked off at noon Friday and benefits Defending the Blue Line and the ALS Foundation.
The tournament is in its sixth year and involves up to 80 teams. Each team plays at least three games, and the champions will be recognized during an award ceremony Sunday.
The "Mighty KSTP" team includes our own Tom Hauser, Eric Kahnert and Chris Long.
Games are at Excelsior Bay on Lake Minnetonka, and spectators are invited to cheer on the teams from the Youngstedts’ Main Tent next to Maynard’s Restaurant in Excelsior.
