MyFoxHockey Schedule 2011-2012

Post by karl(east) » Thu Sep 29, 2011 7:53 pm

The schedule, according to myfoxhockey.com:

Tuesday November 29 Minnetonka @ Apple Valley Apple Valley Sports Arena

Saturday December 3 Hill-Murray @ Burnsville Burnsville Ice Center

Saturday December 10 Minnetonka @ Duluth East Amsoil Arena Duluth

Thursday December 15 Edina Holiday Classic Braemar Arena Edina (2 Games)
Friday December 16 Edina Holiday Classic Braemar Arena Edina (2 Games)
Saturday December 17 Edina Holiday Classic Braemar Arena Edina (2 Games)

Tuesday December 20 Maple Grove @ BSM SLP Ice Arena

Wednesday Dec 21 Breck @ Holy Angels Richfield Ice Arena

Monday December 26 St. Louis Park Holiday Classic SLP Ice Arena (4 Games)
Tuesday December 27 St. Louis Park Holiday Classic SLP Ice Arena (2 Games)
Wednesday Dec 28 St. Louis Park Holiday Classic SLP Ice Arena (Championship)

Wednesday January 4 Duluth East @ Maple Grove Maple Grove CC

Saturday January 7 White Bear Lake @ Edina Braemar Arena Edina

Tuesday January 10 Hermantown @ Grand Rapids IRA Civic Arena

Thursday January 12 Maple Grove @ Edina Braemar Arena Edina

Saturday January 14 Duluth East @ Eden Prairie EP Community Center

Tuesday January 17 Hill-Murray @ Eden Prairie EP Community Center

Saturday January 21 Hockey Day in Minnesota

Friday January 27 Moorhead @ BSM SLP Ice Arena

Tuesday January 31 Roseau @ Warroad Warroad

Thursday February 2 Buffalo @ Rogers Rogers Ice Arena

Saturday February 4 Minnetonka @ Edina Braemar Arena Edina

Saturday February 18 Blaine @ Centennial Centennial Sports Arena

For the most part a good schedule, though I can tell them right now that the alleged Minnetonka-Duluth East game on Dec. 10 does not exist. No idea where they got that one from. They're playing on Lake Minnetonka in January--but that looks to be on the schedule too, so we will get to see those two teams play.

Looks like they will have a new commentator this year, too.

Website is showing Bart Archer back in the commentator's role and Ryan Phelps taking command as play-by-play announcer.
Be kind. Rewind.

According to the Minnetonka schedule on the MSHSL website this game does exist, Duluth East's schedule also shows it. Interesting though that Minnetonka's schedule shows them playing at Hopkins on Hockey Day and Duluth East is shown at St. Cloud. Was the Dec. 10 game scrapped after the Lake Minnetonka game was announced and this schedule just isn't up to date?

There must be an inside connection for there to be a Buffalo or Rogers(or both) game year after year..

And where's Eagan?

They are in Grand Rapids two days early. Why the game against Hermantown when on Thursday Duluth East is in GR for a section final rematch and game that will likely decide the #1 and #2 seeds?

Possible. I checked both schools' activity calendars last night and both have complete schedules without that game. (In my experience, this is by far the best place to look for schedules before the season starts.) Can't remember where Minnetonka was, if anywhere, when the East schedule first came out in May, but I don't think it was there either. Not that it matters.

Either way, I hope they find some game to cover that night, or schedule another road trip up to Duluth (or Grand Rapids, on the date rapidsrapids suggested...)

Nice.... :lol:

As for the Buffalo/Rogers game, I think that was a mis-print. I'm assuming it's the Sabres and Rangers playing! :wink:

Pete Waggoner (formerly of MyFoxHockey) has something different in the works from what I hear. There should be an announcement coming in about a week...and it should be pretty cool.

I'll let you know when I hear more.

If the weather holds EP-MHS on hockey day could be excellent.

Sorry about the Tonka v. Duluth East flub in December...it was there when I first put the thing together in the spring...honest...didn't do the double check. Added Eagan @ Tonka Jan 3.

Pete has decided to leave the stable to pursue other opportunities. We wish him the best in his future endeavors.

No worries, just wanted to point it out so that you'd have plenty of time to make new plans. I'm glad to see Eagan got added, though I'm hoping you'll find another opportunity to come up to Duluth. :wink:

It'll be strange not having Pete on the play-by-play, but I look forward to hearing the new guy.

Since your in a adding mode, it would be a shame for you to not cover the 1/26 Hill Murray vs St. Thomas game. This is the two best east side privates once again going head to head in round two of a conference home and home which will most likley decide the conference title. It was a packed house last year and a great game vs. the two number #1's from each class.

And 4-5 Edina gms this year??? A little scheduling diversity would be good for MyFoxHockey, as there is some great hockey out there that should be covered other than the multiple games of teams from the West Metro Area. It is better than last year though....

A couple of things on the 1/26 Hill v. STA game (1) STA has an agreement with MSBN on the webcasting side. Totally appreciate and respect that relationship and tend to let them do their thing. (2) We are working a little more closely with FSN for hockey and trying to avoid stepping on each other which means fewer LIVE Thursday games for us. My opinion is it is better for the overall game not battling for space and eyeballs. Schedule will be tweaked as we go and games will be added. *Flex type games if you will

As to getting outside of the "west metro" comment, it is 100% accurate and noted. The problem is there are four or five teams on that side of town that pop from a viewership perspective. Edina, Tonka, EP etc give us that pop. I felt really good about the mix of our schedule this season (probably better than I ever have). From top 10 perspective, I think we've got AA covered fairly well but as stated above, we'll add as we go with feedback from fans (i.e. you) as to what/where we go.

I think this has the potential to be the best (from an overall "teams that have a shot") perspective.

See you at the rink!

*KFAN/Minnesota Wild Game of the Week.

Looks like a great schedule, though I'm curious about the relationship with MyFoxHockey--there is definitely some overlap between the two schedules, though there are also plenty of nights where they're in different places. (And it also has the nonexistent East-Tonka game.)

You can take the date we have with Tonka...this year was one that went from looking very good to struggling with the loss of some very key players. They might want to re-think that one. Please [-o<

Why so many games at Braemar Edina? Good filming location?

Under the radar? I'm sure it's a fine program where the fellas all give 110% and I wish them the best, but how many tournament appearances does Eagan have, and have the made a deep run into the state tournament?

With all due respect, I think if they gain some altitude they won't be under the radar.

I'm sure we'll find out December 3rd against Eden Prairie. This will be a good game to see where both teams are at. As of now, I'd predict an Eagan victory.

There are 9, 6 are holiday tourney and 3 are regular season games.

Edina will be good and Maple Grove and WBL are note worthy opponents. Hopefully the Tonka game isn't in question.

Who wouldn't want to watch EP, GR, Edina and ER play? None of those 6 games won't have a good team in it. ER has been down recently and if they are up it would be 6 great games.
