I am not originally from MN. Been here only 6 years. But I have lived in 6-7 states and travel for biz all over the country. My neighbor's kids play year-round. The HS hockey seems to be what comes after all the other seasons of year-round hockey. I have a lit outdoor rink in the park off my back yard which is full every day/night. It seems to be the focus of every parent.

Also, with the old UND coach in Omaha now (and he recruits MN a lot), the HS kids are off to ND, UNO, UND more so than staying home at UM.

My only complaint is the style of hockey that is taught here doesn't seem to translate to 'pretty' hockey. Not talking Shattuck....but HS hockey. But as a Hawks fan, Leddy is a great skater and well advanced in hockey sense than other young D-men. So I might be a little off there. Just trying to think of a slick skating, high scoring player(s) that come form here on a consistent basis.
