Minnesota Hockey, Inc. proposes moving Willmar traveling youth hockey out of its home district and sending it south.

The governing body will discuss district realignment on Sunday during its quarterly meeting at the Marriot West in St. Louis Park.

District 5 has been Willmar's hockey home forever. The 10-program district extends from Hutchinson to St. Cloud to Buffalo and includes familiar high-school rivals like Sauk Rapids, River Lakes, and Sartell.
