Is it sanctioned by the MSHSL? Are active HS players allowed to participate during the season?
The MSHSL season starts on November 12th this year so the timing works with the league.

Re: First-ever Minnesota HS All-Star Prospects Game (Nov. 10)

The word "Prep" in the title makes me wonder if it will also include players not playing MSHSL this year. i.e. Shattuck, AAA, NAHL, USHL ? Also is it for Seniors only?

Re: Elite League Livestream: NTDP u17 vs. N & SW

Based on how Mr Hockey voting typically goes, it’s Donovan’s to win, if he slips up, Koster & Leudtke have a Chip, chair & a Chance...everyone else has a chance to be finalists, but it’s s one horse race (3 at most) IMO Seeing Koster hit Donovan in full stride with a perfect pass (one of many) and ...

Re: Elite League Livestream: NTDP u17 vs. N & SW

OOTC - Ill put the Nevers, JJ scoring this year at low-to-mid 40's. Different team, better balance (hopefully) and no Mr Hockey feeding them softball assists to tap in...I hope Im wrong and you're right. But Ill put a $2.00 french vanilla cappuccino on it IF we ever run into each other at a game. (...

Re: Elite League Livestream: NTDP u17 vs. N & SW

FInally had a chance to watch the archived stream. Did think it was interesting they put non-north Koster on first PP unit, but I guess they’re trying to win the game. This was my first viewing of Donovan this fall and he didn’t disappoint. That combo of size and skating is something special. Again...

Re: Suburban East Conf.

CDH will dominate and may run the table in conference play. Pre-season #2 seed in 6AA behind Edina and a top-10 AA ranked team to begin season, probably #5 or #6, behind Andover, East, Edina, & Tonka and on par with STA. WBL graduated a good senior class and lost best defensemen to USNTDP. Likely a...

You can scratch SG from Lakeville North. Will be second, maybe third, best player on that team. Are the others Seniors? Does it matter?

I went to a couple games yesterday and noticed there were very few scouts there compared to prior weekends. I counted only about 3 or 4 compared to a couple dozen on prior weekends. Does anyone know why? Thanks.

Re: Elk River senior F Jack Perbix commits to Gophers (former ND commit)

How many more players is Motzko going to poach from other D1 programs? Is there a limit? If there is a limit who can Motzko whine too in order to plead his case for more players? :P My guess is Jack wanted to go to the U but didn't think Lucia or his coaching fit his game. Motzko changed that aspect.

Re: Elk River senior F Jack Perbix commits to Gophers (former ND commit)

I read this as the Gophers telling him they want him to play at least 1 year in the USHL before coming to the U. He could have stayed at ER for his Senior year and then play a year in the USHL before joining the Gophers. His choice. I'm guessing the Gophers would have been fine either..

To me , Koster style of play more resembles Peruni or Jack Achan
Scott Perunovich is my favorite high school hockey player since Mike Crowley. Koster isn't in their league yet but I believe he is an outstanding player and leader.

So you are saying Chaska or Duluth East. Are you kidding me? Chaska? Chaska hockey? This Chaska kid will have to be Wayne Gretzky reincarnated. Common people. Do we have to be fair, politically correct, and equal opportunity on the forum? Koster is not Wayne Gretzky but I talked with a group of par...

Re: 2018 elite league

Agree that one game doesn't make a season but after watching all four games this morning I thought Mike Koster was the most impactful player despite the fact that his team lost.

One of the more "humorous" elite league moments was a few years back when Oliver had most of the egf squad on an elite league team. And he was the coach of that team. Nothing like a few extra months of team practice before the season starts. :P What year was that? I can't recall EGF kids being on t...

If Chaska takes a step up into the top 10 or even top 5 my money will be on Defenseman Mike Koster. He had 55 points last season albeit against a weaker schedule than some listed here. None the less I believe it will be one of the defensemen.
