I'm no expert by any means, but Minnesota high school hockey really is the exception rather than the rule. They play truly based on community location. Although I'm not sure how it works, but they do have "elite" leagues for high schools with much tougher competition. There is high school hockey in other areas of the country, like Wisconsin and I'm sure out east. Eastern prep schools are a pretty good source, but I don't hear them talked about as much.
I think most places in the US do play club. AAA hockey, hope you get noticed by a junior team, and progress from there. While not as much, even Minnesota HS kids are starting to skip some high school and head over into juniors to ensure high level of competition.
Not really much of a comparison for you. When you say compare though, do you mean which type of path is better, or just the overall talent level in each?
