Happy that GR got their first win tonight, against Roseau in overtime. I'm sure that will take some pressure off. Things would probably not seem so sparse for talent if McLaughlin, Hain, and Stejskal were still around - taking nothing away from Holum. Hopefully, this will help build some confidence...

I am sure he is learning that there is a lot more to coaching a high school team than showing up for games and practices. Nice guy but he was given an empty tool box.

One of the players for Grand Rapids came at me on Twitter a few weeks before the season and said they are going to defend their title. Seems more likely that I'll die laughing. It's a shame. Several years ago the Grand Rapids Player Development Committee was approached regarding the development of ...

As the parent of a player that played for Trent as a Bantam & very briefly as a sophomore in HS - it's been my experience that he is one of the most dedicated, honest men I've met. He truly cares about the kids. Having a sophomore to be - I'm very encouraged that Trent will guide him if he hopefully...

Rapids Bantam goalie last year was deemed the best in the state, correct me if I'm wrong. Does anyone know what he is up to or why he isn't getting some time on varsity?

Because he's still a Bantam AA

Try looking at 76-77 Grand Rapids State Champs, I believe there were 15 or 16 who went on to play D1 and the Edina team of 77-78 was close to that. D1 a little different back then, but in context GR in '90 had quite a few - Marinucci - UMD Fairchild - Wisconsin Nielson - U of M Roy - UMD Cusey - No...

Youth Goalie of the Year

GR's Zach Stejskal has been named the Reebok/CCM Youth Goalie of the Year. GR now boasts the Brimsek winner in HS & the top youth goalie. I'd say the future will be bright in the nets for the orange & black. Congratulations to Zach.

This subject comes up every year. Bemidji and Brainerd kids compete and also Warroad kids too. They try to field a competitive team year in year out. The range is too thin for talent these days.

I think Grand Rapids is going to attempt to strengthen their schedule by eliminating as many meetings with Class A schools as possible & replacing them with more AA teams. Adding a below average Greenway team doesn't really fall in line with that mission.

Cloquet controlled play early in this one outshooting GR big in the 1st but Avery Peterson scored with 30 sec left in the first & Hunter Shepard was a wall again. More of the same early on in the 2nd but GR started to find their legs and took control of the game. Another late goal, this one by Eric ...

Has Avery Peterson got any offers yet from D1 schools? Especially now that he is drafted? Yes, several. I couldn't tell you from where though. He has been keeping pretty hush hush about it, taking his sweet time to commit. I wish him the best in the future but am disappointed he's taking the Sioux ...
