Boys Hockey: Hill-Murray looking to take another huge step

Perennial boys hockey power Hill-Murray High School began the 2013-2014 season with one major goal in mind. Well, maybe there is more than one thing on the team’s mind.
If I were a mind reader, I would say the Pioneers want to make their 27th bid to the state boys hockey tournament. And once there, I would say the one goal they may have in mind would be to win one more game than they have won the last two years they were in the tournament.

Girls hockey: Achiever Academy downs Polars

Achiever Academy, a small school in Vadnais Heights devoted to hockey, made a trip to Polar Arena Nov. 14, and the Aces gave a skating lesson to the North High Polars.
Except for North goalie Marit Larson, who was just short of perfect, in goal, the Polars found getting into the Aces’ zone a difficult chore.
Larson turned aside 42 of the 44 missiles ticketed for the 24 square feet behind her. She held the opposition scoreless until the third period. Through the first 34 minutes of action, Larson had stopped 27 shots on goal.

Boys Hockey: Tartan facing hockey season with many questions

When you attend a Tartan High School boys hockey game this season, make sure you pick up a roster as you enter the arena.
The old saying, “You can’t tell the players without a program” may well hold true. Last season the Titans had no less than 14 seniors. Those players have since graduated and moved on to other pursuits, and their co-head coach Jim McElmury has retired.
When talking about his expectations for the 2013-2014 hockey season, Tartan co-head coach Steve Romanchuk succinctly stated, “We lack experience.”

Knights looking for contributions throughout the roster

Replacing departed players will be key for the Irondale/St. Anthony Village boys hockey team this winter. The Knights return just seven letterwinners from last year’s team.
"We lost a lot of scoring to graduation, early departures and one transfer,” said Irondale head coach Adam Schmidt, who is in his third season as the Knights’ head coach. “Therefore, we will need the returning players to step up a bit and the young players to contribute immediately if we are going to be successful.”

RAHS girls hockey off to fast start

A go-to scorer has been a trademark of the Roseville Area High School girls hockey program over the years. That could be a bit different this season, however.
Roseville’s go-to player on the offense the last couple of years was Kate Flug but she graduated last spring and is now playing in college. Head coach Vic Brodt expects the scoring burden to be spread out to a larger number of players.
