Re: HDM 2021

Has any Single A squad played a double AA squad in Minnesota Hockey Day history besides CEC in Elk River, HDM 2014? I never quite understood the CEC vs. Roch Lourdes Hockey Day matchup that year. Was there some kind of history between those two programs? Not that I’m aware of. It makes sense though...

CEC at Grand Rapids tomorrow night :)... CEC in a tisk with Duluth East for the 3/4 seed. A win here would certainly help. A win vs. Rapids and East early on sounds tasty. Let’s do this Cloquet, Esko, and Carlton hockey boys!!!!!! http://www.minnesota-scores.net/classstandings.php?yid=1920&sport=10...

Re: Future of Duluth Marshall

If a kid is playing for fun, Junior Gold should be an option. Not available everywhere, but those areas that have larger numbers where most of these problems as described exist offer it or will offer it if asked. I agree to a point. Jr. Gold is not for everyone. There is a reason they make the team...

Re: Minnesota Article on Eden Prairie

Kids say they want to play with their buddies in high school. Move ins, transfers, etc. meanwhile all your buddies get cut. Sounds more like junior hockey/pay-to-play. That’s just the way it is now in 2019. It’s better to have the best players versus the right ones. That’s just how it is with the b...

Correction, Grant Clafton played college for St. Cloud Huskies. Clafton is the right man for the job long term no doubt about it.
Doh! Yep, sorry, I think had Marinucci's college stuck in my head.

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

I can tell you from direct experience with a similar situation. A interim head coach could set the program back. If there is an opportunity to simply make a hire, that would be ideal. If the guy you want is available, then yes absolutely hire him. However, if the guy you want (long-term) is in a he...

Re: 7AA 2019-2020

We're just over two weeks away from the beginning of the season. I highly doubt Rapids will hire a permanent replacement, more likely due to the timing they will name an interim for this season and plan to do the full interview process in the Spring. If they want the best possible candidate then tha...

Not sure but maybe this thread should be moved to the Junior Forum. Not much activity there so I like it on this one though. GB
Some of the kids listed are still HS aged, so it does have some relevance to the HS hockey landscape.
