Re: University of St Thomas

St. Cloud's and Mankato's attendance last year were roughly the same. According to USCHO.com, SCSU averaged 4146 per game, 16th in the country. MSUM averaged 4129 per game, ranking 18th. Full attendance figures are here: https://www.uscho.com/stats/attendance/division-i-men/2018-2019/ Ok... College...

Re: University of St Thomas

I graduated from MSU before they turned Div I and no one went to games then. Even now they draw just OK considering how good of a record they've the past few years. Most people at the games when I go down barely watch nor understand the game and student participation is pretty poor. Mankato and sur...

Re: University of St Thomas

There is nothing to say UIC can't have a donor and PSU's donor isn't buying tickets, Notre Dame's national recognition has nothing to do with filling seats, Mankato is not a hockey area and is barely a hockey school but has decent attendance and again the Chicago Wolves draw very well in their leag...

Re: University of St Thomas

Biggest problem is the arena. St. Thomas's 1,400 seat arena 7 miles from campus would be the second smallest in D1 hockey. Offering enough scholarships for a competitive D1 team would be difficult without some MAJOR booster support. Recruiting for a 2021 roster should start yesterday. Not saying it...

Awesome. I saw them, as well as Voyageurs. Both beat my son's team in close games. Minnesota showed its model off to all. Elite League in full swing. Blades showcase. Blizzard showcase. NAPHL. Think how many kids it takes to fill all these teams and everyone did well. Best developmental model in th...

He was in a very bad car accident and had a severely broken leg. Critical condition for a while if I remember right.

I can’t believe Coach would “banish players” high school kids.... Alec Baer already forgotten. For going to watc...

There are absolutely some on this list who should have been on teams already like Jackson Blake and Max Burkholder (when was the last time a Bantam Player of the Year had to tryout for elite league?

Re: State of Hockey's Team

Edina will always have a handful of D1 caliber players on every team. With the sheer numbers in their youth program and former professional and D1 players who choose to live there it’s always likely they’ll have very talented and well coached players. But like an earlier poster said, a well rounded...

Re: State of Hockey's Team

Obviously turning into a Lucia type pout fest on here... College representation is creeping up in percentage in the NHL and the longer development is turning undrafted players into future NHLer's. A win-win. Go ahead and watch the 18-21 year olds play 35 year olds in the NHL if you can't handle it.....

193 divided by 4... but the 193 could be from 6 or 7 birth years but you still can divide by 4 for a rough average.. of course knowing kids will enter at all different times.. but it is pretty simple to get a rough average per year. Some birth years might have 66 that end up playing D-1... and other...
