Flu infects Minnesota State University-Mankato hockey team, cancels game
MANKATO, Minn. (KXLT) -- An early start to the flu season has claimed its latest victim: collegiate hockey.
Minnesota State University-Mankato canceled its home game last night against Princeton because several players are out with the flu. The game will be recorded as "no contest" and not a forfeit because it was canceled due to illness.
Mankato's athletic director, said there aren't enough healthy players to ice a team.
The Mavericks beat Princeton 5-0 on Friday night. Plans for ticket reimbursement for Saturday's game will be announced at a later date.
