High School Hockey Season Starts

As the prep football season closed out at the Metrodome, high school hockey got underway. It really gets going this week, as pretty much everyone we cover will have a game under their belt by Saturday. Most will have played earlier than that, and some have already gotten in a game or two.

Similar to football, I have set up a Google spreadsheet to keep track of the teams in our three area sections in Minnesota (Sections 5A, 7A, and 7AA), as well as the two that cover northern Wisconsin (Section 1 and Section 2). As we speak, all Minnesota teams are in, and I am working to get all the Wisconsin teams done as the season starts. Please e-mail me with any information you believe to be incorrect, or if you can help provide anything we are missing.
