Does anyone really care it is just a big money tournament that most associations won't participate in due to the cost. You can almost go to two tournaments for the price of this one. It is all about Youth Hockey Hub and teams from District 3 & 6 teams. Here is my take on this tournament. (Disclosur...

D8 Squirt A Preview

Takes place Saturday at Cottage Grove starting at 8AM.

My prognosis for top 3 district teams this year (by alpha). Think it will be a dogfight between these 3:

Apple Valley
Eagan
Woodbury

Apple Valley is open in the SSC. Jerry Hayes retired after 17 seasons. Good coach, 1 state tourney appearance and 7 section final appearances. Great teams in '01 and '05 that were upset in sections. His '11 team was another good squad with AJ Michaelson and Hudson Fasching. He developed a fair amoun...

Otown - In the 80's Owatonna was a power in many sports, they won a track title in 81 and were runners up in football in 82, they were a top 10 hockey program for a few years then under Dudley Otto. I think Albert Lea was also but just for a year. That was time when schools who were successful at o...

Realistically, if you are truly looking for goalie development, your money is better spent on goalie training than AAA hockey. AAA is fun for them, but it isn't generally the best return on investment for the goalie outside of the fun. That said, I do know the the MN Black Bears have a good goalie ...

AAA Goalies

Wondering what AAA programs offer for goaltender development. My son plays in a program that offers us about 10 goaltender specific sessions either within our team practices or another level practice. Goalies get below a blue line for work at about a 4:1 GT/Coach ratio for 2/3 of practice, then get ...

Kloos and 4 other seniors were sent out with less than a minute left so that they could end their final home game on the ice. I am sure Winona did the same thing, as a lot of coaches do, as a sign of gratuity and respect for seniors who deserve it. It was not so they could keep running up the score...

Apple Valley's Michaelson was sicker than a dog. Guess had horrible case of flu and was throwing up all day. Too bad these kids wait for these moments all year and then something they can't control happens. I said in the beginning of the year when I watched this Eagan team they would pose a threat ...

Re: Bjugstad or Fasching

Will Fasching be a better college(pro) prospect than Bjugstad? Very impressed... Too early to say- playing to Bjugstad's level will be a tall order, but he is only a Frosh and a young one at that. As I said on another thread, Michaelson and Fasching are something special, could be as good or better...
