Re: Will there be high school hockey for 2020-2021?

Your idea of testing everybody on the way in is certainly more effective, but I would argue on the cost comparison. Plus, if the bubble masks were required that cost would almost certainly be passed on to individual players and their family, much like a stick or most other other required equipment (...

Re: Will there be high school hockey for 2020-2021?

I’ve got a crazy idea that many may scoff at, but for hockey at least, can’t they just require kids to wear the plastic bubbles on their helmets? Won’t be perfect, as they have holes on the bottom, but essentially so do the nurse face shields. Obviously not a 100% solution for everything, but seems ...

Re: Will there be high school hockey for 2020-2021?

Spoke with a Northern Minnesota assistant principle today that I have a good relationship with and this person indicated that, at the moment, it doesn't look good for fall sports. When I asked about winter sports, this person wasn't much more confident. The reality is -- and my assistant principle ...

Good to see some MN HS boys get drafted and are the same as tender going into main camps.
Only 81 players selected. :x
Still a whole other draft planned for this summer after, presumably, pre-draft camps take place. Was a good day for Minnesotans though.

Re: USHL Futures Draft May 4th

Most MN goalies spend at least a season or two in the NAHL before going to USHL. Some skip USHL all together. There’s probably more, but Jared Moe is one exception to this I can think of.

Well said Lee.

Re: Transfers 2020-21

I give it a 1 in 3 chance there is no hockey come October. No decision should be made on where to play early. I completely agree with this. I'm not sure how anything will happen until there's a vaccine. Relatedly, I don't think there will be any fall high school or college sports. There are other f...

This is the first US draft and it appears to be largely a response to NCAA recruiting rules. These kids are 2-3 years a...

You’ve been reading too much of the Dave Spehar parody. Not sure where all the 2AA conspiracy theorists came from. Seems like this section has been pretty spot on and straightforward for the last few years.

Blake wins over EP 5-4. EP scores 6 seconds into game and then was up 3-1 after 1st period. Blake wins 2nd period 2-1 and then scores 2 in the 3rd to win. Tons of speed and skill on the ice tonight. Jackson Blake on the roster but not on the ice. Stream worth a watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Nice write up. One correction, Blaine’s 14-0 win was over the other SLP: Spring Lake Park. Last season I’d say what’s the difference, but this year St. Louis Park is quietly putting up some respectable games and they have a top end goalie. 14-0 over St. Louis Park would be mildly shocking.
