Re: YHH Summer HS Hockey Podcast 2019

Specifically how are some associations "covered" by yhh.com in a way disproportionately with the coverage you think yhh.com should instead be providing?

Re: Moving to Minnesota for HS Hockey

Edina was a rival of ours. I was a So. in '84 and had no idea they had 2 CA transplants on the roster so I wonder if most people are even aware of it. Hopefully in some of these cases they take up roots in the state after their playing days are over (like so many former North Stars and Wild players ...

Re: Early Departures 2019-2020

It's starting to feel more and more that HS hockey will continue to lose more and more talent to early departures that I had hoped for the past several seasons. While it's still hanging on to most - and I could be wrong - but it feels like there's been an acceleration of players leaving early altho...

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

I hope they all arrive and they fall flat on their face. That's a gross # of transfers for a school with that high of an enrollment.

Re: Class AA rankings

Will be interesting to see what Tonka does. They didn't have a great record but only graduated 3 players with measurable stats and they were 5, 6th and 8th in scoring. Question will be if Edge or Dulac gets more time in net? Dulac saw more ice last year but Edge had the clear *ahem* edge in stats.

Re: 2019 Elite League Rosters

Yes I'm sure Sean Goldsworthy in his 3rd year of coaching is running roughshod over EL roster formations, and Curt Giles has no pull seeing that Edina only had 2 or 3 players named.

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

Today's posts further confirm how provincial some (many?) Minnesotans are about their hockey. Oakland Grizzlies have been an upper-echelon Midget program for at least 5 years and frequently place kids in the "final 40" - I know they invite more than that now - tryout for the NTDP.

I believe his Dad is still the coach at Hibbing.

Some good netminders in that group but I think overall the group is weaker than in years past. I'm kind of surprised Houg from Edina didn't make it considering all of the hype...did he not tryout?
And beyond that surprised to see Edina with only 2 players total.

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

Yes, the change in residence rule applies to private schools as well. However, I would not say that it applies equally, in that a family can move anywhere outside of their current school district and transfer to a private school without losing eligibility.

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

The change in residence rule is only marginally applicable to private schools, and any move outside of the current school district would enable the student to become immediately eligible at any private school. So a, ahem, hypothetical family could move from Minnetonka to, say, Maple Grove, and then...

Hearing from a good source that Motzko is indeed going back to SCC. Motzko, the next Kittleson? I hope not, that is sad stuff to watch. GB I’m not sure why that would be sad.

Do they still have a residence in STC? Otherwise the kid can't claim a hardship in asking for the transfer right? Is Tonka able to waive the clause and allowing the move?

Plymouth ice center Dec. 26-28. Looks like H-M, CEC, Blaine and Centennial.
Odd location given the named teams?

[edit] Now that I think about it it's probably a venue trying to earn some holiday $$ and the home team wasn't available.

Re: Transfers for 2019-20 season

5. As noted many times before, all Minnesota HS players (not only goalies) face similar "perceptions" from the scouts that they are weak, soft, country club mentality. Although I disagree, it's still a perception many scouts have about High School hockey in Minnesota That's an (odd?) perception giv...
