any word on the age cutoff date change discussion at the meeting?
In a related thread on the HS board elliott mentioned that it did not pass but that it may come back up in a future meeting.

TG is moving to AA in 2019-2020 - 100%. Talked to one of their coaches who indicated a number of kids are coming into TG next season based on the stipulation they move up to AA (next season)
Interesting. Any insight into which programs will possibly be losing kids?

Re: Monday, 2/4 Duluth East at Cloquet

Me too...but they’ve done it before. I simply think the northern 7AA teams have went to the well enough times at this point & came out on top...that a team like this years version of Andover is due to flip that script . Yes, like the Elks in '10....oops I meant Elks in '15, that was their year....u...

Re: Monday, 2/4 Duluth East at Cloquet

Everything you said about DE being tough at home in the playoffs is true & they very well may win 7AA in the end. But Andover is REALLY GOOD...so we shall see 😉 Not to mention that Duluth's arenas in the section playoffs aren't in Andover's head. Like some teams. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: I would conside...

Another name no one knows in MN HS Hockey.
That's because he doesn't play MN HS Hockey (or maybe that's your subtle point). He plays Tier 1 hockey.

Re: The Hermantown Thread

I guess there are buses leaving early and fanning out throughout the area every morning to pick up only good hockey players. They looked really hard and found 34 players to try out this year. I hear they somehow have this huge metropolitan area of 150000 people to choose from. Elk River had 36 kids...

You are right.
They should.
I will put this on the district director agenda.

Sent email to add it to the district director private meeting agenda.
We will see what happens there.
Thank you! And again, thanks for your time and dedication to this great sport and the kids in MN that play it!

Re: Minnesota Hockey cut-off dates

This. If the date is going to move, match the school grade date. It is the only logical date for a community based league that feeds into a high school league . I'm not sure how anybody could argue against that. This is one of the easy ones Elliott. Don't let them screw it up. So what date is that?...

Here's another question I would have: If MN Hockey is considering this in order to benefit the June born kids, what does MN Hockey have against the May born kids. Why would you want to put those kids at even more of a disadvantage than they currently have? Does MN Hockey like June kids more than the...

No, you are reading it right. MH is considering it, at a request of some members. Let me guess. A few parents w...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

The problem with hockey is that school enrollment does not mean much. The quality of the youth program is the most determining factor (and ability to keep kids in your program/high school) that really matters. Absolutely. Enrollment only matters to those very few that are trying to hide behind it. ...

I'm hearing the same. Rumor mill says that the Elks will be practically unbeatable in about 10 years! :wink:

Re: Gentry Academy D Jake Martin commits to Miami of Ohio

The thing making Gentry so interesting is they have a school, they have a Varsity (MSHSL), and they have the players in the school. While they are playing a national Midget schedule this year, next...? Two different teams. If you look at the MSHSL roster and the 15U Tier 1 roster, different kids. M...
