Edina to celebrate 49th Annual Hockey Invitational

The players are ready. The stands are packed. And Braemar Arena pulses with excitement. This is the 49th year of hockey at the Edina Invitational, presented by Tradition Capital Bank – an event that’s as important today as it was nearly 50 years ago.

Edina Hockey Tradition Began in 1950s

Now an established hockey power with 11 state high school boys’ hockey championships, Edina’s hockey program was in its infancy in the 1950s.
   
Edina had its first taste of success in 1955, when it entered the State High School Tournament for the first time (only to lose). But that was enough to draw about 50 boys to the newly formed Edina youth hockey association the following year.
