Hundreds of little hockey players, got to try some Olympic-style challenges before a big tournament in Moorhead Friday. Many of the players hope to be in the Olympics someday, and say they often dream about playing for team USA.

Some parents say that feels like a long time away, but one dad says he will support his son no matter the cost. "It is a big expense, but again, it keeps them out of trouble," says Brent Barth, "It gives you a chance to get back out there and enjoy it with them."
