The Fargo Force and Scheels Arena, in partnership with Anheuser-Busch, announced today that it will host a blood drive for the American Red Cross on Wednesday, June 3 from 12:00-6:00 PM and Thursday, June 4 from 9:00 AM-3:00 PM.
Individuals must register online to schedule an appointment by visiting redcrossblood.org and using sponsor code “Fargo”. All blood types are needed, and space is limited. Free parking will be available at Scheels Arena in the main lot to the south of the building. Donors are to enter through the main doors on the south side. To adhere to social distancing practices, donors are asked to arrive no earlier than 5 minutes before their scheduled appointment time and to not bring additional guests.
This drive comes as the Red Cross encourages healthy individuals to schedule and keep blood donation appointments in the weeks ahead to ensure a stable supply for patients throughout this coronavirus pandemic. All donors are required to wear a face covering or mask while at the drive, in alignment with new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention public guidance. For those that do not have a mask, one will be provided for you.
Blood donation is essential to ensuring the health of the community. As experts have emphasized, there is no certain end date in this fight against coronavirus, and the Red Cross needs the help of blood donors to maintain a sufficient blood supply for weeks to come. Each Red Cross blood drive and donation center follows the highest standards of safety and infection control, and additional precautions – including social distancing and face masks for donors and staff – have been implemented to ensure the health of Red Cross donors, employees and volunteers.
In addition to standard safety protocols, the Fargo Force, Scheels Arena, and the Red Cross will be taking numerous safety precautions to adhere to Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, such as:
All of those who donate will receive a “swag bag” as a thank you from D-S Beverages, Anheuser-Busch and the Fargo Force.

The Fargo Force selected 21 players in the 2020 USHL Phase II Draft on Tuesday, including 11 forwards, nine defensemen and one goalie. Goaltender Andrew Miller was selected with the Force’s first pick. Miller played the 2019-20 season with the Bismarck Bobcats in the NAHL. The netminder from Boulder, CO played in 35 games with a .912 save percentage and a 2.29 GAA.
Prior to the draft, the Force made a big trade with Sioux City. Fargo traded a 1st round pick (#12 overall) to the Musketeers for coveted defenseman Scott Morrow. Morrow racked up 67 points (22g, 45a) last season with Shattuck St. Mary’s Prep. The Darien, CT native is committed to the University of North Dakota.
For Phase II, USHL teams selected players from multiple birth years (2000-2004) looking to fill their protected lists with players who will compete for roster spots for the 2020-21 season. Phase II continued until all USHL teams had secured 45 players on their Initial Protected List. That list includes affiliate players from the 2019-20 season, players selected in Phase I, and players signed to a tender.

“A lot of hard work and preparation went into the Draft by our staff, and the Force had a big day – starting with acquiring Scott Morrow," said Fargo GM Cary Eades. "Morrow is an offensive D-man who we feel was one of the best players not in junior hockey this past season – he’s an absolute game breaker! As the day went along, we were able to select players at all 3 positions, as we have a bunch of holes to fill from last year’s Force team that saw 14 players graduate to college and pro hockey.”
All players selected will be invited to the Fargo Force tryout camp in Fargo to compete for a spot on the Force roster for the 2020-21 season.
