"The Minnesota Icemen are a first class hockey club both on and off the ice. I've alway been impressed with the leadership and direction given to these young players by the coaching staff. Their players conduct themselves like fine young men in both appearance and attitude. Players are versed in the fundamentals of hockey and taught the important off ice lessons about discipline, dedication and accountability. The quality of player is always high and the Sioux City Musketeers have been able to identify and scout future USHL players with this program."
Mark Abalan - Associate Head Coach, Sioux City Musketeers, USHL

The MN IceMen/Ice Cougars AAA Hockey Club’s goal is to develop intelligent athletes with grit.
Our three principles are Accountability, Tenacity and Passion. IceMen and Ice Cougar players will receive instruction based upon the core hockey skills. In addition, we emphasize the key details of how to make their teammates better on and off the ice. Each player will be treated with respect. Every coach and player will be held to the highest standard of accountability.
We work with coaches, managers and scouts at levels where decisions are made on players' careers. We know what they look for in an athlete and individual. Our goal is to educate players for the real circumstances that are ahead. Come train with a resource that has direct contact with affiliations to help further one's playing career.
