As we saw on News 5 at Six, Tri–City Storm hockey players came to Libs Park in Hastings tonight for an outdoor clinic and skills competiton...
Stormy was on hand with the players as the Storm had a chance to meet some of their fans here in Hastings. Skate on a different surface and take their show outside away from their home at the Viaero Events Center in Kearney.
2 NHL games have been played ouside at Yankee Stadium within the past two days and one at Dodger Stadium last week.
Hockey outside whether it's a game or a practice is unique and fun for the players..
O, it's awesome, it's great exposure for us, just to come out and supporting all the community, it's awesome.
Do you like meeting the young kids and hopefully get new fans for you?
O yeah, definitely it's always nice getting new fans and new people that we mee and know they support us and we suppor them, it's great.
Are you having fun tonight with the kids? It is, it's great to see the support from surrounding towns not just Kearney along but Hastings and the other small towns–little kids out here having fun with us is always great.
After the Clinic, the players had a chance to meet and talk to the young fans that came out to see them at Libs tonight.
The Storm, who have won their last three games and and are 15 and 21 on the season, return to the Viaera Events Center to take on the Des Moines Buccneers tomorrow and Saturday night.
