Meet Drake University's new ice hockey team
Drake University students recently launched a new ice hockey club.
Why it matters: It's fun and contributes to the community by adding some new entertainment options.
State of play: Sophomore Griffin Dyka, a Minnesota native, took the initial steps to start Drake University Club Hockey after transferring this year from Creighton University.
- Building love for the sport comes naturally, he told Axios. (His family owns HockeyFinder.com, a free service that helps make the sport more accessible.)
How to help: The team is seeking donations and sponsorships to help pay for uniforms, ice costs and league fees.
- They're now up just over 20% of their $21,450 goal.
