I went to a fight, and a hockey game broke out.

Hopefully she is alright!
Was there last year for the WB game and a girl was hit in the face also. This one sounds more serious though and something needs to change there.

Interesting but I doubt it. Otherwise there would be alot of arenas shut down do to this kind of incident. You are watching at your own Risk sort of speak.

Agreed. I'm pretty sure that arenas have policies that when you buy the ticket you are understand and accept the risks of watching a hockey game. However, I think people still file lawsuits and occasionally win. That's why Mariucci finally put up netting behind the goals. Hope she is OK.
I get older they stay the same age, alright alright

The Cloquet boards are actually at a pretty comfortable height if you want to rest your arms on something while you stand watching the game. Roughly half of the PA Announcer's words over the course of a game at the Lumberdome are something along the lines of "please do not lean on the glass..." :lol:

But seriously, they are a safety hazard. Fans get hurt by pucks, and it's so low that it makes it far too easy to throw things over them, either onto the ice or at the spectators on the other side...and I'm not talking about Chuck-a-Pucks here.

lets back up , i hope the girl is going to recover 100%..

Did this happen in the old Cloquet arena, or the newer one next door?
The old one, there is only the corners safe to sit. My wife was sitting in the middle under the heat, and I asked her to move to the corner. In the middle your torso and face is above the glass only feet from the ice.. bam.

I am unfamiliar with the glass being low in the newer arena, and have watched a 1/2 dozen or so games in it. Burnsville rink 1 on the other hand, same thing.. on side opposite the players bench. Glass is below the seats.
Was a duster and paying for it?????

The Boards are Way to Low...especially if your Sitting Across from the Main Benches Next to the announcers...I was pretty scared sitting there for the Hibbing-Cloquet game.

Seamless glass would be a great addition to a very nice arena.

as an attorney, she has no reason to sue and thats without me knowing next to anything about the situation. Hockey is a watch at your own risk, and for her to sue would cost so much in pre-litigation vs. what the city of cloquet could reasonably pay out that its a waste of her time. I hope the girl is ok and wish her the best of luck in her recovery. Hopefully the rink can take additional measures to prevent this type of thing in the future.

They have heat in the old Cloquet Arena? :lol:

I've been there for a couple of youth tournaments, and don't know if I've ever been so cold in my life. (It was a very cold weekend....)

I don't know why I never joined the site, but I've been reading off and on for a few years...

While it was definitely a tragedy that it happened.. it needs to be a lesson to everyone who attends hockey games.... watch the game! Being at the game and seeing it happen, she and her friends were turned away from the play for the most part, and someone else said they were busy texting at the same time. Just like a baseball game, you need to be paying attention to what's going on. Pro and college events have warnings of flying projectiles to limit their liabilities in case of a tragedies like these.

That said, Yes, we need glass that is 2 feet higher like other arenas have these days. The Heritage Center in Duluth was built with glass that is high enough to make a safe environment, and our Cloquet arena needs to be also.
