Summer hockey, minus the skates offered in Farmington


A new hockey league is coming to Farmington this summer and no skates are required.

Called simply ball hockey, the league is offered through Lakeville-based Dryland Hockey, Inc. It looks like a regular hockey game, but players are in tennis shoes and there is no ice. The game is played with a ball instead of a puck.
