Also, he may have been bullied by his team mates. Happens all the time in high school. Lastly, he may have gotten screwed over by the coach due to politics (again, happens all the time). For example, if the sophomore goalie's parents are family friend's with the coach, the kid will get the start as a "favor." All sorts of B.S. like this happens.

I'm not saying that what he did was right...I'm just saying it may have been more justified than it seems.
Uh, in MN, high school hockey is as competitive as it gets (not counting college). It's political and very, very serious.
