Re: CONGRATS to O'Leary at Wayzata- Non-teacher Hockey Coach

Congrats to Pat O'Leary and his Trojans with their big Section win over BSM. Besides O'Leary and Janne Kivihalme at Burnsville, how many other Minnesota high school teams have non-teacher coaches? In this day and age, it would seem more specialized sports like hockey and lacrosse at this level shou...

Two years with the NTDP and needed a place to play for a year before the draft. Same thing as Seth Jones basical...

HaHa. The kid hasn't hit the 30pt mark in hs hockey and you think he can be a high pick and play in the ushl? His family and others are talking about being a free agent rather than a 7th round pick. So for you guys that think this was a legit pick and not based on his name. Do you think the wild wo...

As I mentioned on Twitter, I don't see the need for any kid to give up his chances of getting a scholarship to a good NCAA school at such a young age. It is an absolute waste and unnecessary. 30% of the players that played in the NHL this season where from NCAA hockey. That number is increasing. It...

He's no longer listed on the Portland roster, and is only listed as having played one game with them. Anybody know what's up? Is he hurt? 15 year olds (1996 bday) can only play a couple of games, i don't know the exact rule but basically they get a cup of coffee and then next year they can have 3 p...

My point exactly. Players like Rau, Bjugstad, Budish, stay in High School and come in with more success at the college level than a kid who played 2 years at ntdp.

yes he was but that doesn't change the fact that he's one of, if not the youngest, division 1 players in the country. Lets give the kid a chance to grow up. Playing against 18 and 19 year olds is different than playing against 22 or 23 year old men. You can't use that as an excuse at the division 1...
