Beargrease sled dog race moved to March

  • Updated: January 15, 2013 - 11:52 PM

Poor snow conditions have forced organizers to postpone the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon in northeastern Minnesota. The race, scheduled to start Jan. 27, has been pushed back to March 10.

Race coordinator Pat Olson told the Duluth News-Tribune (bit.ly/X2Owql) that the trail was "terrible." Olson said organizers are hoping for snow by the new date. If it doesn't, the race could face only its third cancellation. It was canceled in 2007 and last year.

Rau honored by WCHA

Sophomore winger Kyle Rau is the WCHA's offensive player of the week. He had four goals, including a hat trick Saturday, and two assists as the Gophers beat Notre Dame and swept Alaska Anchorage.

Wisconsin senior defenseman John Ramage is the defensive player of the week after scoring two overtime goals in the Badgers' sweep of Minnesota State Mankato. And Denver forward Quentin Shore is the repeat rookie of the week. He had a goal and two assists in the Pioneers' three-point weekend against Nebraska Omaha.
