Re: 7AA 2019-2020

Duluth East, CEC, and Elk River fighting for the #3 seed as to not have to face Andover in the section semi. Grand Rapids won’t be easy, either. Does Rapids have the better goaltending than Andover this year? Elk River will be an Andover nightmare if they meet in the semi. Rapids vs. East or CEC wo...

Re: AA school fielding an additional A team

If JV programs are developmental and whose purpose is to get those next level players ready for the varsity, then how much development is actually occurring when you win every game and win by 5+ goals? (This was pretty much the Genesis of the discussion.) No doubt the larger AA programs would benefi...

AA school fielding an additional A team

Could it work for AA teams who have larger programs (or just want to) to field an A team in addition to their AA team? We were talking about the practice of HS programs cutting seniors in favor of underclassmen and JV teams that aren't finding meaningful competition at that level and the idea came up.

PeeWee A designation

My son plays for his associations A team (we have an AA team as well) and I've been looking forward to seeing the matchups from associations that have an AA team and those that chose not to or couldn't. So far we have done well in all our games except when we played North Branch. Predictably some of...

PeeWee checking

For those who remember when checking was allowed in PeeWee hockey - has the make up of the team changed much since it went away? I was watching a AA PW practice the other day and saw three kids that couldn't have been over 75lbs with their gear on. In fact there were no kids of any significant size ...
