The ice is set at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas for Saturday night’s showdown between UND and Minnesota.

It got a test run on Tuesday morning.

The UNLV hockey team, which plays in ACHA Division I club hockey, practiced at the venue and shared photos on social media.

The game’s official logo is painted at center ice in the 7,500-seat arena about a mile off the strip.

There are four ads in the neutral zone, too: Las Vegas and North Dakota tourism logos, the Orleans Arena logo and Hugo’s grocery store.
