Thousands of Fighting Sioux Hockey Fans got to meet their favorite players today.

The second annual Fan Fest was held at Ralph Engelstad Arena.

UND Hockey players came to the event to meet and greet fans, sign autographs, and play games with kids.

Organizers say this is a great way for the public to get to know the players, and the event brings in thousands of people.

Players say it's a fun event, and it's good to know how many people support their teams.

"When you have this much support and you have an entire town and entire state behind you, and people from elsewhere in the country. It's a little added something that helps you play in games, you know your not just playing for your teammates, but your playing for a lot of other people." UND hockey player Brett Bruneteau said.

Organizers say there were lines out the door this morning, and they're happy to see all the fans come out and get to know the teams.
