Re: The Hermantown Thread

The problem with hockey is that school enrollment does not mean much. The quality of the youth program is the most determining factor (and ability to keep kids in your program/high school) that really matters. Absolutely. Enrollment only matters to those very few that are trying to hide behind it. ...

Re: 7AA 2018-2019

The 2017 ER team was totally in control against GR midway thru the 3rd period, until an ill timed penalty and a shot that was going wide, but the goalie played it & it deflected in off him...THEN the dam broke and they were defeated by a team of “destiny”. In 2015 though...ER was up 3-0 midway thru...

Re: Goals Against

No offense to Andover, because I think they have a legitimate shot at State, but the schedules are no comparison. Not to mention In games vs same opponents Andover has just gotten by teams for their signature wins while Tonka has rolled. I will say this I think Tonka will definitely give up more th...

Re: Checking in bantams

Elk River sounds like the current Mites have talent.
I'm hearing the same. Rumor mill says that the Elks will be practically unbeatable in about 10 years! :wink:
Slow down a little. I heard three of the Elk Mite A's have already committed to Junior teams.

Re: Gentry Academy D Jake Martin commits to Miami of Ohio

Blueline, they have a Varsity. Strong players are in the school. A lot of speculation as to what they'll do next season, but I haven't heard anything conclusive. The team is VERY VERY good and will continue to win games no matter what level. With a record of 3-5 I don't know that I would say their ...

Re: Gentry Academy D Jake Martin commits to Miami of Ohio

The thing making Gentry so interesting is they have a school, they have a Varsity (MSHSL), and they have the players in the school. While they are playing a national Midget schedule this year, next...? Two different teams. If you look at the MSHSL roster and the 15U Tier 1 roster, different kids. M...

Re: Gentry Academy frosh D Jake Martin commits to Miami of Ohio

DOB 3/18/03 - Wouldn't he be a sophomore?

And not to be picky but seems like the Midget AAA board would be more appropriate, this is not a Minnesota High School Hockey team or player.

Re: 7AA 2018-2019

What do the Elks have this year? Some offensive punch up front with Jrs Michaelis and Humphrey. Sr Dman Foss coming back from Odessa was a big help, but D Zone play may still be the team weakness. With only one game in the books it's hard to say much, but a 7-6 win over Coon Rapids is not exactly a...

Re: Junior gold rosters

My brother played J Gold in the early 80's, I played in the late 80's. Was decent hockey back then. Things started going south in the 90's, kids gooning it up pretty bad and that's when they contemplated shutting it down. Thankfully they made a decision to try and clean it up and since the early 200...

Good for the Elks. It makes things a little more interest...

TG only had one player at 15 natty camp. The TG from last year left the program. They did add a senior transfer goalie. Thanks for the clarification.
