St. Cloud State University’s Husky Productions will once again participate in the Hockey Day Minnesota broadcast in 2023, showcasing another example of how St. Cloud State provides students with unique hands-on experiences while remaining focused on the success of students as they pursue their careers.
Hockey Day Minnesota, held in White Bear Lake this year, is a four-day event held annually with the official Hockey Day occurring Jan. 28 in 2023. As part of the Hockey Day Minnesota broadcast schedule, Husky Productions will broadcast the game between St. Cloud State Women’s Hockey and Bemidji State at 1 p.m. on Jan. 28 from the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center. The game will be aired on Bally Spots North Extra.
“It’s a great honor to be involved in Hockey Day Minnesota again,” said Brian Stanley ’93, who has been Executive Producer of Husky Productions since 2012 and will once again handle the game production from their control room in Stewart Hall on campus.
“Bally Sports North’s Hockey Day Minnesota is a celebration of all things hockey in the state of hockey. St. Cloud State hockey and the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center are essential parts of hockey in Minnesota,” Stanley added.
St. Cloud State alumnus Nick Maxon ’22 and former St. Cloud State goaltender Julie Friend ’15 will be on play-by-play duties during the broadcast alongside ice-side reporter Brook Purowitz and in-studio host Ryan McNamara rounding out the on-air crew.
During the broadcast, Husky Productions will have 18 cameras on the game along with eight replay units. Graphics will be shipped in from Bally Sports North to insure a consistent look during the broadcast.
Husky Productions is an entirely student-run organization under the direction of Stanley and Studio Manager Derrick Silvestri. Husky Productions is celebrating its 30th year of broadcasting St. Cloud State hockey this season.
