No, from what I understand the Tier II AA/A teams and/or MN Teams will be in a different bracket from the Tier I AAA teams. They will not play each other as they are not allowed to.

Re: waiver

I am hoping someone from MN Hockey can help me (really anyone who knows the rules). If someone waivers out of an association, are they allowed to play at the 'A' level their first year? If someone waives out to a new association without moving into that association or attending school in that assoc...

I say give this team a chance, and if they become a force in the A level, move them up to AA and let them compete. Don't bash this school because it is new and different. Or go ahead and bash it, ...

Remember northern MN has some great hockey players, some of which can out play any kid on both the machine and blades. But proximity keeps them from playing on the brick team.
