Another tie rematch comes up for the Wolfpack on Tuesday, Jan. 21, when they take on White Bear Lake (7-8-3, 2-6-3 SEC). Those two tied 1-1 on Dec. 10.

The postponed Wolfpack game with Woodbury (6-11-1, 1-9-1) from Tuesday, Jan. 7 due to record cold temps has not been rescheduled yet. The Wolfpack came up short, 4-3, in a loss to the Royals in their first meeting on Nov. 23.

Despite the postponement, the Wolfpack still had a busy week with Cottage Grove Girls Hockey Day on Saturday, Jan. 11. The varsity players helped with the many activities of the day with the youth games and the free skate in the afternoon.
