WATERTOWN, S.D.–No announcements have been made yet on Watertown’s efforts to land a junior hockey team for the new Prairie Lakes Ice Arena, but talks are continuing.

Here’s what City Manager Amanda Mack told KWAT News recently….

The North American Hockey League (NAHL) is an amateur league made up of players who’ve graduated from high school, and are looking to polish their skills at the junior league level in hopes of landing a college hockey scholarship.

The Prairie Lakes Ice Arena won’t open until next fall, so there’s still plenty of time to find an ownership group that will bring a team to Watertown.
