Besides Miller and Ratzlaff , other names missing
I noticed so far :

Hogg: played Blades last year
Langenbrunner
Borst

A few others are Blake, Middelstadt, Peart, Liffrig

Rumors swirling about Hogg's upcoming season destination
Peart had planned on playing for Fargo of the USHL this fall.

Re: Coaching Changes - 2020-21

As I stated in an earlier post, Clafton could end up on the Rapids staff. Personally, I hope that doesn’t happen. I’ve had some conversations with a player or two when he was an assistant at Rapids for one season. Sounds like a very tough guy to play for...lots of negativity and derogatory statement...

Clafton has submitted his recognition for Greenway. Expect Andy Sertich to be the favorite to get the job if he wants it.
Guessing Clafton will be on the Rapids bench this winter as an assistant to Coach Chiodo or possibly associate head coach. I’ve heard the two are good friends.

Re: 7AA 2020-2021

This was suppose to be the last year of a talented bunch of pucksters for CEC. Langenbrunner left though last year and Galatz will or won’t be back. Solid goaltending, an elite defenseman, and a decent top line. The boys in purple will give it their all, though. Coach Walters and his staff will hav...

Re: 7AA 2020-2021

Andover is going to rule 7AA again next winter with their depth. No team will have their quality depth top to bottom. It seems Duluth East will be all sophomores and a couple 8th graders with the talent. Rapids won’t be deep and no returning netminder. Elk has numbers and new rink next winter. 😳😳😳😳...

I have to pull for the Pioneers from the east side. Coach Lechner is a class act, runs a great program, and his boys have always been well mannered and respectful when visiting our barn in Rapids. Go Green!

I could care less about the enrollment. All that matters is how many kids are currently Playing in your program the range schools including Grand Rapids are the same. both field a A team of some kind and a B team. So what’s your excuse now.
Exactly!

Re: 7AA FINALS

Any of the 7AA hive think a certain 218 (team that sandbags 7A currently) will step up to the plate in 2022? If they were to win the state titles in peewee AA, bantam AA, and high school this and next season, they might give it some consideration, but I doubt it. They enjoy way too much, getting ki...

Grand Rapids got robbed on a score. Replay clearly showed it was in., but whistle blew & that's it. ER empty netter so it's 3-1 ER final. Sad. Does anyone have a video link for said controversial goal? Can it be found anywhere? Video in the rink does not have sound so we don't know when the whistle...

I believe Andover is going to reload with decent jv and bantam players coming in, its most likely a very bold statement on Elk River. As for Grand Rapids I took the time to reflect and Grand Rapids has had two awful teams the last few years it made me think a decent team was way better then it real...

Re: 7AA Semifinal II: Elk River vs Grand Rapids

It looked like it was on the line when the goaltender got up. I don’t think it crossed. It was definitely in. Replay clearly showed that most if not all of the puck was across the line. Problem was the ref wasn’t behind the goal enough to see it cross and had blown the whistle. Goal judge would hav...

Rapids and Anoka scoreless after 1. Anoka goalie is playing very well according to KOZY. Several huge saves to keep GR off the board.
