Cancer Awareness Night a Success

The Willmar Warhawks showed their fighting spirit, in a tough battle against Breezy Point on Friday Night in Willmar.  The two teams traded goals back and forth for 3 periods, before Breezy Point eventually came out on top 8-7 in overtime on a power-play goal.

It was cancer awareness night at the Civic Center, where cancer survivors and ones we’ve lost were recognized and honored.  Please take some time to pay tribute to the folks who have shared their loved ones with us:  Cancer Awareness Video

Thanks for all who came out and supported the cause on Friday night.  Also thank you to MinnWest Bank who sold out the VIP section and had a great time!

Hockey Fights Cancer – November 30th, Warhawks vs Breezy Point

Next home game is a special one. Friday, November 30th, is CANCER AWARENESS NIGHT here at the Willmar Civic Center, as the Warhawks host Breezy Point. The Warhawks will be wearing their special pink cancer jerseys, which will be auctioned off before and during the game. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to a charitable organization dedicated to the fight against Cancer.

For this special occasion, we ask that anyone who has had cancer affect their lives or a loved one, please feel free to email Mike Bowman with a picture, as well as the type of cancer, and denote whether the person has survived cancer, currently fighting the battle, or has succumbed (feel free to include lifespan years). We will be putting together a special slide show presentation to honor and recognize those who have been affected.

Mike Bowman can be emailed at Please also contact Mike if you have any questions about this event.

The game is at 7:30, gates open at 6:45 pm. You can purchase general admission tickets online at in order to skip the wait at the gate.

This is a very special night which will be emotional for many people. Please come out and to support the Warhawks as we bring more light to the fight against cancer.

Round 2 Tonight, Willmar hosts Wausau – Military Recognition Night

The Warhawks dropped a tough 4-2 decision last night to the Wausau Riverwolves during Heritage Bank Stocking Cap Night. Trailing 3-2 late in the third period, the Warhawks went on a power play, subsequently pulled the goaltender with under a minute remaining, but couldn’t jam home the game-tying goal before Wausau added an empty netter to set the final score.

Despite being outmanned, the Warhawks put up an impressive effort, outshooting the Riverwolves and they weren’t without their chances either. An entertaining back and forth game on Friday night hopefully serves as an appetizer to an even better treat tonight.

Thank you to all who braved the snow to come out and support the Warhawks on Friday. The crowd was light but loud and enthusiastic, as many in the community proudly made the trek to the cities to support the Willmar High School Football team, who respectfully have earned a birth in the MN State High School Football AAAA Championship next Friday night. Congrats to them and good luck!

Tonight is Military Recognition Night at the Willmar Civic Center. Puck drops at 7:30 pm, gates open at 6:45 pm. Tickets are on sale online at, allowing you to skip the ticket line at the gate.

A LIMITED AMOUNT OF VIP TIX ARE STILL AVAILABLE. Best deal in town — $25 gets you admission to the game, special-tier seating, all-you-can-eat catered by the Green Mill, as well as 3 drink vouchers per ticket.

Tonight’s game will recognize military members past and present, to honor and thank those that have fought to earn and preserve our freedoms here in the United States and around the world. Tonight is to honor those who have given some and all for their family and country. This night, we honor the men, women and the families who have and continue to sacrifice for their fellow Americans and many others around the world.

Special thanks to Crystal, Nate, Monica and the entire crew who help make the Willmar Warhawks a success day in and day out, at and away from the ice arena. Also thank you to the crew of the Willmar Civic Center, easily the best and friendliest in the business, making our venue one of the tops in junior hockey.

See you all tonight! #WeAreWillmar
