He would probably be disowned for going anywhere else given the family legacy :lol: seriously, though, Notre Dame is an excellent school and program, and congrats to the youngest of the Janicke clan.

I would agree that stma is likely going to drop off. My guess is St Cloud drops off even more. Very little returning off last year’s team. Not sure what they have coming in but if I remember correctly their bantams weren’t great and they won’t even get all of them. I would think Buffalo is going to...

How did the teams in the section for these age groups fare at the youth level? I think Moorhead's senior class finished second in bantam AA to Minnetonka. Correct as usual, mi amigo. Their junior class also were consolation champs at state. None of the other teams have qualified for state at Bantam...

Are we sure that STMA isn’t primed for a significant drop off this year? Sure, they return two dynamic scorers in Laylin and Flammang, but nearly everyone else of note from last year’s squad is lost to graduation. Of the ten other double digit scorers, only two return, and they also lose the goalie...

Congrats to them. But the "commit" statement here and elsewhere for D3 hockey is interesting. :P Yeah, that term is thrown around liberally when it comes to D3 athletics, even though there is no NLI or scholarship involved. Even the junior leagues seem to have a lack of understanding as to how the ...

That Hermantown beat down of Benilde is a bit surprising. That said, Hermantown vs. Mahtomedi is the ideal championship matchup in my mind, to see how two of the best Class A teams stack up at this stage.

Re: Summer Hockey Notes by KarlEast

]The third power in 7AA, Cloquet, also had a solid showing in Edina. The Jacks, in my mind, are a step behind East and Andover in both star power and depth, but not so far in either that they don’t have a fighting chance at winning the section. There is also the small matter of their head coach fol...

That's awesome! NESCAC schools are incredible! Good for him. On top of that east coast really supports the D3 hockey from a fan base and business community level.

That Greenway nonconference schedule is brutal. They are definitely not shying away from top level A and AA competition.

This is correct. Both Ness and Bjugstad accelerated their class after their sophomore years, so in effect skipped their junior years and were listed as seniors for their final year in high school. Poehling, on the other hand, skipped from being a junior to college. In theory the Ness/Bjugstad pathw...

[Odds are he is a player who will go pro early (assuming continued development under Motzko) so Gophers could very well get an extra year by bringing him in a year early. Maybe? Hopefully?

Did Bjugstad? I could have sworn he played through his senior year at Blaine. That is correct, as he was Mr. Hockey in 2010. The UMD situation from last year was born out of necessity, given that they had four seniors graduate from the 2017 Frozen Four squad, and Pionk left after two years. The ori...
