MOORHEAD - Minnesota State University Moorhead is considering launching an NCAA Division I hockey team and using the Urban Plains Center as a possible home, MSUM President Edna Szymanski said Monday.


Szymanski said no state money could be used to fund the proposal with the school and state facing a budget deficit.

"Not to explore it would be crazy," Szymanski said. "This is a hockey community. It would help us increase our recognition in the region."
