The St. Cloud Icebreakers will open the 2019-2020 season Thursday night when they take on Hutchinson at the MAC. Puck drop is scheduled for 7 p.m.

The Icebreakers return a number of key players to this season's team, including Gabbie Rud, Katie Bell and Taylor Holm, among others. Coach Mark Chamernick is back behind the bench after three seasons away, taking over for Nick Thibault.

Chamernick joined Dave Overlund on WJON's "Hang Up and Listen" Thursday in advance of the game.
