Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) -- The Guns 'N Hoses hockey game, featuring the Duluth police and fire departments, will have two local hockey notables to help out each team.
Keith "Huffer" Christiansen will be the head coach of the Duluth Fire Department, and Scott Sandelin will be the man in charge of the Duluth Police Department.
Christiansen was an All-American while playing at the University of Minnesota-Duluth (UMD), and then he went on to play professionally and in the Olympics.
Sandelin, meanwhile, played collegiately at North Dakota before moving onto the professional ranks. He is now the men's hockey head coach at UMD, having led the program to its first-ever NCAA Division I championship in 2011.
The game, set for 6:00 p.m. on September 14 at the Heritage Sports Center in Duluth., is being held as a benefit for the Northern Lights Foundation and replaces the traditional Wade Stadium softball game between these two teams that was cancelled due to June's flooding.
The contest comes as part of the Clyde Iron Cup being held between four teams in the United States Hockey League (USHL), with those games coming on September 14 and 15 at the Heritage Sports Center.
