The team is based out of the Dave Torrey Arena in St. Cloud, Minnesota. Plans have been announced to build an all purpose athletic and recreation center on the campus that will include an ice rink for the hockey program. A redesign, renovation and expansion of Haehn Campus Center and Murray Hall will create the new facility.
