Minnesota Blue Ox (1995, 1999)

The Minnesota Blue Ox were a professional roller hockey team based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States that played in Roller Hockey International.

History[edit]

Formed in the wake of the Minnesota Arctic Blast, who played at Target Center in 1994, the Blue Ox joined RHI and were placed in the five-team Central Division (Buffalo Stampede, Chicago Cheetahs, Detroit Motor City Mustangs, St. Louis Vipers).

After a 13-11-0 regular season (second in the Central), Minnesota was the fourth-seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Blue Ox were quickly eliminated in two games (best-of 3 series) by the fifth-seeded New Jersey Rockin' Rollers.
