Re: Early Departures 2019-2020

Minnetonka had announced Bobby Brink as their captain last spring as well. Not saying I am in the know on where Pino or Biondi will end up, but I wouldn’t use the captain label as definitive evidence of staying. The window to join the USA NTDP U18 team has come & gone for Biondi...so he will be pla...

Re: Wisconsin has its own Hermantown in Superior

Wisconsin is going to a two class system and Superior with an enrollment of 1,291 fell into Division 2 and declined to opt up. As a proud Superior Spartan alumni from 1977...this decision is WORSE than the sandbagging Hermantown has perpetuated the past 10 years or so ☝️Superior has won 13 State ti...

Re: USHL Draft on May 6th

Might have missed it , but a bit surprised no one in USHL took a long shot on Glockners rights so far. I guess the current thinking is let goalies slog a year+ In NAHL, and then take a look and make another decision for Phase 2 Insight on future plans? Very few goalies drafted out of MN (phase 1 or...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

You know it all's crack me up. Lets set the record straight. First off I hate to break the news to the haters. Fact Biondi and Pierce will be back next year. So quit talking about it or hoping they leave. Second, nobody at Hermantown wants the Virginia kid (who is going to Hermantown next year, loc...

Re: State of Hockey's Team

Edina will always have a handful of D1 caliber players on every team. With the sheer numbers in their youth program and former professional and D1 players who choose to live there it’s always likely they’ll have very talented and well coached players. But like an earlier poster said, a well rounded...

The question is whether Hunter Shepard signs a max free agent deal, which you’d expect he will be offered by one of the 31 teams. D Nick Wolff indicated today he’s retur...

Go Bulldogs! Coach Sandelin should be applauded for what he has done at UMD. 3 straight Frozen Four Title games and he has done it with a roster full of MSHSL guys that finished their careers in MSHSL. Sure there are some exceptions because the path doesn't look the same for everyone, but look at t...

Re: NDTP Invites MN edition

Another way to look at it...out of any MN birth year class...if 10 eventually log at least one game in the NHL...that’s probably pretty good. Of the 98 birth years, Mittelstadt, Anderson & Lindgren have so far. There’s a strong chance Perunovich & Bellows & Tufte & Perbix will within 1-2 years. Who ...

Re: NDTP Invites MN edition

Okay so if I'm following that logic (and trust me I'm not arguing with you) Take the 1998 birth year. It would have around 50 kids right now - Either at the D-1 school, at juniors but verbally committed or maybe already played a year or two of college and currently playing pro (The W and OHL we can...

Well the world looks different in hindsight, does it not? But first, the seeding conspiracy theory. For many seasons the conspiracy was that MSHSL secretly seeding the tourney 1 - 8. Remember that?

Re: AA title: Edina vs EP

What a season for Eden Prairie hockey. Although they took Edina to OT in the championship and lost, they overachieved this year. Never did I think EP would be playing for a championship this year. They have a bright future with Holt and Bachelder shown growth over the last month of the season. Alon...
