PWHL Minnesota championship celebration held in St. Paul

After winning the inaugural PWHL Championship on Wednesday, PWHL Minnesota is hosting a celebration in St. Paul on Friday. 

Minnesota beat Boston 3-0 in Game 5 of the series, bringing the Walter Cup home to the state of hockey in the inaugural season of the Professional Women's Hockey League. Minnesota clinched the series on the road at Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell after Boston evened the best-of-five series in double overtime in Game 4. 

To celebrate the championship win, the team is hosting a championship celebration at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul from 5-7 p.m. on Friday, May 31. The team and staff will be there, along with a live DJ, a photo station, a proclamation from St. Paul Deputy Mayor Jaimee Tincher, and more. 

The event was initially planned for outside on Rice Park Plaza, but it was moved indoors due to rain in the forecast.
