Robbinsdale Cooper/Armstrong won last night. Congrats is probably not the correct thing to say but I am happy for any team to not lose all of their games (at least in girls hockey...kind of enjoy it in the NFL...sorry Cleveland fans). I believe that they were the last of the teams in MNHS hockey wi...

4 programs have had 10 or more goals scored on them in 14 of the 32 games you refer to above. Warroad has scored 10 or more in 4 of their games, along with 9 in one and 8 in another. In those 6 games, they have out scored their opponents 78 to 2. Add in Ft Francis and it is 91 to 4 (that is almost ...

Lots of great hockey top down. Some surprises in regards to a few highly ranked A and AA teams in the gold division who really struggled. Question - when did the USA u18s head out of town? Did they play in their Christmas tourneys? I was just curious when the u18s left as I missed seeing some of th...

Not sure if she has been listed here but we should not over look the Junior goalie from Roseau, Kiana Flaig. If memory serves me correctly (but I am getting older) she was the goalie in the U12 A state tournament that faced 150+ shots and held her team to a second place finish. Roseau won a big game...

Did anyone catch the score of the Warroad game today against some poor team from Minot ND? 20-rip . I suppose this is the type of notable performance no one wants to see. Would the MSHSL even count this game, or the stats that go with it? I know, Warroad cannot control who they get in a holiday tou...

At this point I will remain out of this conversation. Maybe I have a biased eye in the game but like a pirate I will keep it covered. With my years of hockey background I will say one thing that does not bring light or dark to this story. Any HS girls team that does not have a female coach, JV and V...

Re: Schwan’s Cup

Would you watch a Yankees / Red Soxs ALCS game if they played it on ice? If yes, and if #1 Blake ends up in the championship game with #2 Centennial, go watch that too. It will be better than the Yankees and Red Soxs on ice. All kidding aside, I would much rather see the current #1 team in the stat...

After much thought and seeing teams in the Suburban Beast, including Flake over the past five years and keeping an eye on other 7AA teams this year I do not think the Flakers will advance to the state tournament this year.

Couple of thoughts: 1. Great stuff by NORTHWOODS on the WBL/FLAKE goalie analysis. 2. Compare the FLAKE goalie with the Armstrong/Cooper goalie. 4. The 7th grade goalie from Breck was really good when I saw her play a fair amount as a youth player. I look forward to seeing her play a time or two th...

Forest Lake Super Soph is looking great so far.Save % at 96/97 Well maybe if FLAKE played a competitive schedule that might change. They haven't played a quality team yet. Talk about a week schedule! Toughest games this year is WBL and Andover. Neither team is a top 5 team and probably not even a t...

Please fell free to add any comments. A Thief River Falls - One tie to West Fargo (power house in ND). Are they back to ...

Anyone get the chance to watch the games from yesterday. Good action with a couple MN girls showing their talent. MN not as strong as the past years at the U-18 Select Camp. Strange to see this with all the D1 commits from this age group. Maybe MN Hockey needs to send some 'new blood' to the USA Cam...

Neutral Zone has only 30 2019 players listed to date and MN is off to great start with 3 in the top 10 and 7 in top 26. To think that MN talent will fall off the map has no merit.
