The puck drops for the first time Friday night for the newly relocated Brookings Blizzard, who play host to the Bismarck Bobcats in a North American Hockey League exhibition game.
The contest at Larson Ice Center is the first for the junior hockey team, which announced the move from Alexandria, Minn., to the city of just over 22,000 in April.
The regular season opens Sept. 12-15 with the multi-team NAHL Showcase in Blaine, Minn. Brookings is scheduled to face the Johnstown Tomahawks, the Springfield Jr. Blues, the Soo Eagles and the Wenatchee Wild during the four-day tournament.
