A few initial observations:


8 sophomores . Looks about right. Only 1 other came to my mind not there . Will be very exciting to see Shaugabay at New Hope

Goalies look about right . Affiliation on one of them likely to change

Miller and Ratzlaff not there . They have option no matter what unfolds

Deast and CEC 1 each. What a change from a few seasons ago .

Was hoping Schimek and Kurth might crossover this year to challenge for A title. Still possible I suppose ,but but not on list . Lots options depending how things unfold .

And as a lot of speculation pointed to, Fechko is in Edina

Going to assume a lot of the big name players are waiting to see what happens with schools and falls sports. If any doubt of a regular Hs season will probably leave and head to juniors.

Meanwhile, Denfeld has four (and HT five). Quite the change in fortunes indeed.

For sophomores, I was surprised not to see Oliver Moore from TG. Also, I am biased, but Caden Morgan of Breck is one of the best young D-men in the state.

My guess is Moore is probably pursuing other options by choice this fall, he's still 15U eligible.

I think most of the sophomores are older sophomores that would have been 16s this past spring.

Thanks (and also to Slapper Al), that makes sense.

Interesting to see the Lake conference goalie listed as his current school and not the school he has been reported to be training with.

Meanwhile, a skater from a Section 2 school is listed as a Lake Conference, Section 6 school.

Peart had planned on playing for Fargo of the USHL this fall.

Yes Hayes is listed as Hopkins even though he has been confirmed to EP, and Fechko is listed at Edina now.

Why all the vagueness, just say it for what it is.

Could be this comes from the registration paperwork, which for most occurs back in February/March. So I'm not sure if it's deceitful or if the player's family filled it out based on what they knew at that time? I'm not sure the HSEL coaches or admin would really be that concerned about who the player listed as their school affiliation?

The league is almost all good. No question about it. But man, they could help themselves avoid a lot of questioning of their credibility by paying just a little bit of attention to the insider moves the coaches make. It’s a great league. The spots are precious. It’s unfortunate they don’t always look at it that way themselves.

Good point.

I think another way to elevate the product is to not have "guaranteed" spots the following years once you make the team. Lot of kids who peaked as sophomores or juniors keeping spots from well deserving seniors who have developed later on. Coaches could put in a "protected list" of the top 5 or 6 returning players and make everyone else tryout again. Never understood the reasoning behind having the guaranteed spot once you made the team.

As stated above, still a great league

I believe all were there as freshman with the exception of Ellings who transferred in from Providence last fall as a Junior.

This might belong in early departures and not gospel but heard Galatz was playing for the Wilderness this year. Not sure if it'd be before and after HS season or all year.
