I played Hockey from 6-18 years old, so please explain the "grueling" trek from Grand Rapids..... IMO We felt more intensity , more of a build up on a little road trip Not saying they can or will, but if GR plays like they did the last 7 minutes against ER, then DE will lose by a couple goals.'The ...

Half of PW aged players in MN are Bantam eligible in the rest of the US. I was opposed to this when it first came out but feel there should be some modification. Checking in PWA or AA should be allowed but the current rule for the B level would be a good idea for development. This was passed using c...

It's pretty simple after last night with STMA beating Cloquet. ER, GR, DE, STMA, Cloq, Andover, FL and St. F STMA has a good record but soft schedule, GR get 2 because of win vs East and east gets 3 because of narrow win vs STMA and loss vs GR. Give one good reason East should be 2 or STMA should be...

Too early to draw conclusions about either team, but Rapids was very impressive. The first 3 or 4 minutes were concerning with BJI keeping the action in Rapids zone, but giving up that first goal seemed to wake-up the T-hawks. I was really impressed with Rapids' crisp passing, rapid puck movement, ...

Goalie is the biggest issue for this team. Hopefully the D with a year of experience will be better but without Clafton helping develop them, it could be a very long year for the Orange and Black

Why doesn't the league ask Oliver to step aside and keep EGF players in Great Plains and not take a potential spot of another North Player.

Sounds like GR has promoted Clairmont last years JV coach to asst Varsity and hired Brett Beckfeld and Tony Clafton as JV coaches. Great additions to JV staff.

I'm sure EE is a great kid, but he has not gotten this far because of his skills. Connections to certain individu...
