Vladislav Tretiak; if you score the puck on him, keep the puck because it does not happen often.

For every program that has one 12U but no 15U team, there will be 7 or 8 girls that play 12 in 7th grade and high school in 8th grade.

Who wins?
When the smoke clears, taking into consideration home ice and a little puck luck, it'll come down to the team that scores more goals than they allow.

association does not want him (thus allowing a waiver)
If the association doesn't sign the waiver, must he be allowed to play there.

Also, isn't the DD the Great and Powerful Oz in this situation?

It will be Phil Paquette. The Cardinals will win 16 games and lose in the semi-finals of the Section. Let's move on. Who are the real powers this year Goldy? Will they make it to the semi-finals? In addition to Nelson, did they lose the SD kid and a goalie? If so, will they be better than New Ulm, ...

If my notes are correct, one of the new goalies is a 10th grader who made it to the St. Cloud camp this past summer, and one of the 9th grade goalies should be there in 2017. It's a big step from state summer camp to backing a top 10 AA team. I've seen this said goalie, and she is not ready to make...

What are the odds playing 70 Bantam games is a better experience, and better for development, than being a 9th grader on a varsity team. I don't think these kids are necessarily even planning to tryout for the high school team this year. I assume they have enrolled in the high school they eventuall...

seems somewhat inflated
And every year the stories from kids returning from national camp, both boys and girls, include comments about how many of the kids that were not selected were better than most of the kids attending the camp from other USAH districts.

Interesting, I wonder about the rationale behind such a rule:
Would a 9th grader be allowed on the team, if it meant cutting a senior?
If the 8th grader wasn't allowed to participate on the high school team, was a middle school opportunity provided by the school district?

When you have "Futures" that have been cut by their HS JV team, you have to wonder about the selection criteria. Some school districts absolutely forbid middle schoolers from playing high school sports if the school has enough high school participants. Wasn't there a situation in Anoka-Hennepin in ...

So are they really waiting for USA Hockey, or are they waiting for responses from the kids they've emailed, or both? Do the girls know by default that they were not selected?
