Re: NAHL-Early Tenders- MN Players

GB - this may have been answered in another thread, but I can't find it. Do you know how many NAHL games a kid can play to start the season and still be eligible for the HS season? Also, do you know if someone can play a full NAHL season, and then go back to MSHSL the following year?

Re: Watch NTDP vs Elite League this weekend

So the next Gretzky. :P 17 total goals. 5 goals 0 assists. Definitely not Gretzky-like. Now, if it was 5 goals and 12 assists, then maybe.... I wasn't looking at the stat line so much (lack of assists) as the ability to gobble up pucks near the net as well as avoiding being hit/giving a hit. I unde...

Re: Watch NTDP vs Elite League this weekend

Chaz ended up with 5 and JJ 3 Final 17–5 as Team NE with a tough day for D and Gs Lucius with 5, and not a single one from outside of 10 feet. 4 of 5 within 3 feet. Stands next to the net and shovels in rebounds (which is certainly a skill all its own). Expends very little energy; rarely gives a hi...

Mainly he is a goal scorer. Plain and simple. He scores. A lot. Zero assists on the season thus far. ...

Re: 2019 Elite League Rosters

Been said by multiple high school coaches that often goalies have a bit of an adjustment period after playing in HSEL once season starts. Their game can struggle early in HS season because of it. That strikes me as counter intuitive--help me understand. Are you saying that because EL goalies are se...

Re: 2019 Elite League Rosters

Looking at the stats, and based on the number of shots being given up, the stars in these games appear to be the goalies. 35+ shots allowed is not unusual. Is anyone playing defense, are the shot totals accurate, or is it just a free-for-all attempt to put up points? I'd love to see the plus/minus s...

More appropriate competition for them perhaps. Teams guest play in the league. I can see being against guest ...

Re: Moving to Minnesota for HS Hockey

It is a bad thing because of the tension it creates in the community. No player moves in to a particular community to play hockey unless they have been promised something by the coaches. The parents in the community know this and it makes the coaches out to be duplicitous a-holes, because while they...

The Motzko kid will not get screwed. The ADs will sign off no problem. All Bob has to say is, "do you want any of your athletes to have a chance to play for the Gophers, while I'm the coach?" Not saying it will come to that, but there is no way any AD would stand in the way knowing that is a possibi...

I can confirm the reason Austin Cooley was not eligible for varsity last year is due to the Grand Forks AD deaming him ineligible for Varsity athletics.

Today's posts further confirm how provincial some (many?) Minnesotans are about their hockey. Oakland Grizzlies have been an upper-echelon Midget program for at least 5 years and frequently place kids in the "final 40" - I know they invite more than that now - tryout for the NTDP.

EP is a top 3 team now in my opinion. May be a Mr. Hockey Finalist. GB
GB, have you seen him play? I've not, but I see he is 5' 8" and was the 7th leading scorer on a midget team from California. If he's that good, someone should make a run at getting the number 1-6 scorers.
