If CM was injured, then why did coach double and sometime triples shift the boy? Here is an instance where the coach put his career and agenda ahead of his own players'. Sad in my opinion, very sad and should be investigated.

I commend him for sticking around with his buddies to try and win a HS State Championship, but I think (EP) arrogance and entitlement played a bigger part in it than anyone wants to admit. In addition, coaching at EP is suspect. EP is one of the largest high schools and youth hockey programs in the ...

Lucia is such a crappy coach that his own kid didn't want to play for him.

Re: Maybe?

Overall, I thought the two best teams played the championship game and the deeper team with a better goalie won. That being said, i liked one of your JV goalies. He was quite technical and didn't flop around like a fish. Can't remember his number though. He could have gotten the job done. Hope he g...

EP doesn't have a team without Middlestadt. Plain and simple. EP team or coaches can't function without him.

I've seen some terrible lists, but this is got to be one of the worst. Most of the top goalies are not even listed.

Going to be a close one....but Prior Lake is going to take this one. All they have to do is stop Middlestadt (hard thing to do) and Prior Lake should be fine. Graham can't carry the team and Prior Lake's defense and goaltending is head and shoulders above EP's. Season was too early when these two te...

It amazes me how one player can make such a huge difference. What does that really say for the entire team. Not much I'm afraid. Too many apparent really good teams in MN hockey are just average when missing one or two players.

Without either Middlrstadt or Graham EP is an above average team at best. Without both of them, below average HS team.

Jerry Johnson 50/50?, will stay if ...

Was it me or was the finals anti-climatic, borderline boring? Almost as boring as, well, last year's finals where Lakeville North was beat down into nothing. Quarters and semis were way more fun to watch and much better games. Kudos to Duluth East for getting as far as they did, but just didn't have...

USA U17 team plays as a team and they all skate hard and they operate already in winter hockey mode (PRACTICE TOGETHER EVERY DAY, TEAM FUNCTIONS, SYSTEMS, ExT...). Elite league is a step above summer hockey. The teams don't play systems, they get together on the weekends and play games. For anyone ...

Nowhere near this type of blow out last year. Tough on the stats :shock: Somebody get the goalies a life preserver. You are right! Last year's US U-17 team was far more talented compared to this year's squad. Last year Minny teams fared much better than 8-2 and 11-1 beat downs over this weekend.

I agree. It's really not fair to compare a younger hand picked team from all over the US to a hand picked team from a dozen or so local HS teams.

Was there as well. This was an unbalanced matchup. Yea...I get the fact the US U17 team is on and off the ice together every day, but we are talking about all '98 born players against mostly '97 and '96 born players. Keller consistently shows that he is the best '98 born US player year after year de...

Should be a great season. Edina will be tough to beat. I like EP and Graham should have a big year. It'll be interesting to see the loss of Spinner. I hear those talking about Mittelstadt and why he might turn into something he's not there yet. He can't make his own shots/opportunities and has to d...

I guess we will have to wait and see. Like anything when it comes to kids, it's pretty much a crap shoot! :D

WestMetro...look for Varsity and JV stats under www.mnhockeyhub.com.
JV stats are under "More", "Other Leagues", then "MSHSL JV".

Good luck to all this coming season!

The goaltending at EP this year is plentiful. From what I've heard, 11 to 12 goalies trying out for varsity this coming season. The front runners are most likely the two JV goalies from last year. Both posted strong numbers while playing arguably the toughest JV schedule last season. Team will defin...
