The Steele County Blades Hold Open Tryouts
(ABC 6 NEWS) -- The Steele County Blades hockey team in Owatonna is in it's inaugural season as part of the Minnesota Junior Hockey League. They held open tryouts today at the Four Seasons Centre in Owatonna.
The Blades' Board of Directors had to convince the County Board to bring back junior hockey to the area after the Owatonna Express left following the 2010-2011 season. After receiving 1,200 signatures from the public, the team was put into place and the season begins in September.
