Gophers to Host "Gold Out" on Saturday

The Gopher women's hockey team is pleased to host a "Gold Out" for Saturday's game against Bemidji State at Ridder Arena. Puck drop is set for 4 p.m., and the first 2,000 fans in attendance will receive a free gold t-shirt courtesy of the University of Minnesota's Unlimited Dance Marathon to benefit Amplatz Children's Hospital.

Minnesota will also recognize a special Goldy's Hero this Saturday. Prior to the game, the Gophers will hold a ceremonial puck drop in honor of Lilah Kelley. Lilah is the daughter of Gopher women's hockey alum Jenelle (Philipczyk) Kelley and the niece of current Bemidji State player Jenessa Philipczyk. Lilah is a patient at Amplatz Children's Hospital.

Saturday is also Student Day for the Gophers, and all University of Minnesota students will receive free admission with a valid U-Card.

Following Saturday's game, the Gophers will hold a season ticket holder/VIP Pass-holder autograph session on the concourse.
