Thanks 62. So Sawchyn is playing U16?
Correct. One of a handful of 05s on U16 club. Between him, Whitelaw on Prep, and Woodbury’s Henricks they have a really solid crew of 05s. Obviously many others too.

Re: 2020 Elite League rosters

Yeah , Don’t know what happened with SSM. Would also be interested to know if their bantam team played at Brooklyn Park , have heard that team is absolutely loaded , including Brodie Ziemer Covid. No need to talk any further about it and lock this thread down. Hopefully they will be back and ready ...

Re: Early Departures 2020-2021

3 isn’t a ton, The ripple effects will be huge. Springfield Blues also announced they are taking the season off. So 3 NAHL & 2 USHL teams for a total of over 100 players not on no-tuition teams. Since HS players are the younger ones it is those kids at risk for not sticking. This is true, but on th...

Re: Early Departures 2020-2021

After two USHL teams declare they are taking the 2020-2021 season off, every other USHL team receives about 3 new players who would have been on a USHL roster this year. 3 isn’t a ton, but could certainly have a trickle effect on some bubble players hoping to make the early jump this year.

Re: Top 5 Goaltenders

Yeah they load up because why not? At least one or two practice goalies but then if they want they can give them games in NA3HL or U18 AAA leagues. NAHL has a great history of developing high end goalies but unfortunately they have a long list of goalies who have been buried on the rosters.

Re: Top 5 Goaltenders

With the USHL/NAHL drafts now completed, it seems to be another decent year for MNHS goalies moving on to juniors. Too early to tell on how it'll all shake out, but by my count we have the following (apologies if I missed any): Pinney - tendered to St Cloud of NAHL Hodges - drafted by Austin in NAH...

Re: Podcast

Fun podcast. Great to hear all three of them discuss HS Hockey again. Towards the end when they discussed how USHL is not just a given for many of these high school players, it reminded me of something else. If there is no college hockey season or it is severely diminished, there are theoretically s...

Re: 2AA outlook

Minnetonka has the benefit of great depth and a lack of super high end guys that are flight risks. Big question mark is goaltending. PL similar story but with two very high end goalies. EP is the opposite. Lots of potential for guys who are doing before/after to pull a Bobby Brink/Blake McLaughlin a...

For anyone who says we can’t fully return to normal until we develop a vaccine, we need to keep in mind that there is a real chance that day never comes.

Re: Minnesota Hockey Taking Over?

Wise Old Man, regarding coaching levels, I think but I’m not positive that they recently did away with the level requirements for older ages. So a level 1 can coach mites or can coach bantams. Somebody correct me if I’m wrong there.

Slightly different style, but reminds me of former Chaska forward Rhett Pitlick.

My first thought was Oliver Moore?
That would be a good comparison for a fellow 05.
