Re: Scott Perunovich

Watching him play with the puck as long as he did, it always amazed me why other teams didn't just forget about the puck and pummel him every chance they got. Will be interesting to see if his lack of size matters at the next level. Because his agility on skates was off the charts ☝️I think he will...

Re: Scott Perunovich

I think it’s safe to say that when Perunovich committed to UMD on or about April 1, 2015 it was a turning point in the fortunes of the school that landed him (and in the fortunes of the schools that failed to land him) much more significantly than anyone realized at the time☝️Scotty controlled the p...

Re: Turning Points

2019-20 Pioneers went 3-5-2 over a month into mid-January and then played better than any other team the rest of the way en route to the state title. The team I witnessed Hermantown manhandling at Aldrich, in a game they literally did nothing...to convincing AA Champs, a gigantic turn around in a s...

Re: Turning Points

In 2015, DE lost to Anoka 5-3 on a Tuesday night in late January at Anoka. After the game, MR told a highly connected MN Hockey org. guy that Anoka was a solid team, had 3 good lines & a good goalie. The following Saturday, DE tied #2 ranked ER at ER (utilizing a 2-3 trap) and the rest is history, D...

Re: The Hermantown Thread

Bruce Plante said it himself about STA many years ago. Hermantown Hockey today is exactly what Bruce Plante was complaining about and they’re worse than STA, way worse and it’s not even close. They’re on a whole new level with how blatantly obvious it is. Plus they clearly have the kids brainwashed...

South was a good team all year and Kloos was not going to be denied a trip to state, they rolled through se...

Re: Mahtomedi vs Hermantown

Couple observations. Regarding the tying goal; although Kilen was definitely in the crease prior to the puck entering the crease, the high school rule for player in the crease is interpreted the same as NCAA and NHL. The attacking player can be in the crease as long as they don't interfere with the...

HT on the board 2-1 Mahtomedi after two periods. Mahtomedi is playing a terrific game & HT is playing well too, should be a great 3rd period!

Re: Mahtomedi vs Hermantown

Back to the game...very good 1st period by Mahtomedi and a 1-0 lead. Shaping up to be a very good game. I think Hermantown had a bit of a chip on their shoulder vs SCC which provided added motivation, that’s not the case today. Hermantown needs to find their energy in the next period and play their ...

Biondi is kind of a punk.
He's clearly a douche. If he gets to the show he better hope he can still dominate or his big head will shrink quickly.
LOL...he’s only a douche to you Bonin2121 because he’s a tUMD recruit, you’re not fooling anybody. 🤠 How did “your” team do last night?

Is the Strobel kid on Hill related to Eric Strobel from Mayo/Miracle on ice fame?
No, (I don’t think so) he’s Mike Strobels son...who along with twin brother Mark played on the 1991 State Champion HM team.
