Gopher fans can show their appreciation for the men and women of the military this weekend.

The men’s hockey team is honoring the military at its game Friday night. It’s also raising money for Defending the Blue Line, which ensures that kids of military families have the opportunity to participate in hockey.

Defending the Blue Line will also host a charity game Sunday night at Mariucci Arena, and Zach Parise and Ryan Suter of the Wild are expected to attend.
