I thought that was in 2020-21?

I also heard a Cambridge skater is making a more significant move than NWC.

Re: National and Select camp selections...

I’m interested in the age bias present in both USA hockey’s evaluation process and college recruiting. Led by Frost who has recruited almost exclusively kids with birth months between January and July in the last three years, kids born in the first half of the year have a HUGE advantage in birth-ye...

2022 grad commits to WI on 5/10 - so much for recruiting rules

A class of 2022 skater from South St. Paul committed to Wisconsin about two hours ago today (5/10). His Twitter post announcing the commitment is also today.

How is this possible?

Re: Development is YOUR responsibility

No, the best athletes are playing basketball or wrestling. Continue to make hockey inaccessible to 80% of the population. Development is a minor issue. If the kid can’t afford to even play hockey after the 4th grade development does not matter. Income does not equal talent. MN hockey better wrap th...

Re: Competitive Section Assignments

It is a distinct possibility that top 10 teams won't make the section semi-finals in 6AA and 7AA the next two years because they lose to higher ranked teams. That's absurd.

Re: Coaching changes 2019/2020

The WBL coach made sure his senior goalie and senior skaters were in a position to win the Section Final. He managed his situation well and put Frank in a position to win that game for the team. I think he did a fine job this year.

Re: 2019 STATE TOURNAMENT

Fun game to watch for this neutral fan. Tonka wins 7-4 with an empty netter at the end. The Crimson had a two man advantage with their goalie pulled at the end, when it was 6-4, and came very close several times to pull within one. But they panicked a little at the end, and a turnover gave Tonka th...

Re: Andover vs. Elk River

I do think the MSHSL has to approach the postseason for girls hockey differently. The sections setup isn't practical, especially when teams can self-select up or down. Either have true integrity in the sections approach (i.e., keep Blake and Hill-Murray in A, and Minneapolis and St. Paul / Sibley in...

Re: Tis the Transfer season...

I'm not sure many teams will have success with only 14 goals in 10 games. Only 8 scored by forwards.

They'll have to get their D1 skaters on the ice over 35 minutes a game in February to have any chance to get to St. Paul. Maybe that's the end game.
