    Fair Play in Youth Hockey Tournaments: Is it Necessary?

    From December 2013 to February 2014, Mayo Clinic Ice Hockey research team members have been comparing Minnesota youth hockey tournaments played in Rochester to tournaments played in Woodbury.

Teams in Rochester competed in tournaments that were governed by intensified Fair Play rules, while those in Woodbury were governed by regular tournament rules.
