    I assume they split a bunch but the word I heard about a former 3rd string goalie was she only got a partial her senior year. I admire the heck out of any kid who puts in the work required for free knowing they may never play. Depends on how you define walk-on. I know there are girls who are invited to play with no scholarship but the offer to try to get something in later years. Given that everyone in the WCHA is over staffed I have to believe at least some of them are in that boat.

    Ask the Gophers' two current transfers, Caitlin Reilly from Penn State and Nicole Schammel from Minnesota-State, and I'm sure they would agree with you, in that they're developing more and I would guess very happy with their move...even though they are maybe not as big of fish in the new bigger pond than the smaller pond they decided to leave. Being an integral part of a winning program, and tackling all the challenges that brings, has to be more rewarding (and fun) for both of them.

    MJ does not over-recruit. This year he is carrying 11 F, 7 D and 4 goalies. Next year he has 15 F, but I think 2 will be on the Olympic team. The following year he has 12 F, but will probably gain the 2 Olympians back, so he'll have 14. He has no more than 7 D on the books for the next 3 years. Basically if MJ picks you, you are gonna see some ice time, or be very close to competing your way onto the ice.

    How many of those 4 goalies are going to compete their way onto the ice?

    The Gophs have 4 goalies next year, too. It makes it hard to just get enough minutes in practice.

    That was not for people like you - that was a shot at the whiners who are so upset about MN having extra players but have no problem that their dear U might have an extra or two. as noted, 7 of the 8 WCHA teams have more than a full roster & the 8th probably would if they had not had the troubles

    The annual StarTribune's Girls Hockey Preview is late this year, but better late than never. Loved this "storyline" on Gopher recruit Grace Zumwinkle:

    4. Amazing Grace
    Breck senior forward Grace Zumwinkle draws raves for dominant play while her booming shots are drawing blood. Unleashing a shot that Mustangs coach Ronda Engelhardt called “the hardest in girls’ hockey,” Zumwinkle bent the mask and bloodied the nose of Centennial’s goalie in the season opener. Next game saw Zumwinkle break the skate of Benilde-St. Margaret’s goalie and crack the shin guard of another Red Knights player, the latter causing bleeding. Beyond the equipment carnage, Zumwinkle, committed to the Gophers, scored 10 goals in Breck’s first three games.

    Regarding Zumwinkle..

    I'm really hoping she can shoot a knuckle puck...That would be sweet.

    Who is making this equipment??? I'm thinking that it wouldn't hold up very well if it were used in a men's/boys' game, so why stick it on the face of a goalie in a girls' game and call it "protection"?

    With respect to the mask one possibility is that it wasn't a perfect fit on the goalie, or it wasn't secured tight enough so the force of the puck caused it to move. The shin pad cracking is a mystery, unless the girl was using the same cheap model from her U12 days.

    sporting goods are not made to last anymore, the emphasis is on new features that give an athlete an edge, and if somebody else has it, you have to have it, in fact it is better if it doesn't last, that way a player has an excuse to get new equipment (and importantly to the maker of sporting goods, sell more equipment), mom and dad can afford it and they want their little tadpole to be the next big thing, so they pay it, until they realize they are not going to be the next big thing, but there is always the next batch of dreamers to replace the disenchanted, and higher up nobody cares since they don't have to buy their own equipment.

    now add in that since women aren't as strong as men, they can make the women's equipment cheaper, less of anything that will save them a few pennies

    it would be interesting to know what flex she uses, most players these days use highly flexible sticks compared to years gone by, and girls are encouraged to use especially flexible compared to boys (there is your answer Blackbeard on why women don't seem as accurate as men, that and that they probably took a few minutes every day out of shooting at the wall to do their homework, lol)
    but if a girl learns to use a stick with flex that a boy would use, watch out, things could break and people get hurt

    See this is the difference between a Midwest elitist and and an Eastern elitist. The Midwest elitist discusses the equipment aspect were the Eastern elitist would be raving about how "clearly the best" said recruit is.

    Was down in the cities over the holiday and was fortunate enough to be taken to a (my first and only) Minnesota High School game, Edina vs Centennial.

    Was a close game for the first two periods then Edina started turning the screws.

    Couldn't help but notice Emily Oden of Edina...she blasted a laser top shelf as she was cruising through the face off circle...like it had eyes...and she shot it like a man...with maximum authority. Those I was with and I were all stunned by the shot quality, force and how quickly it was taken.

    I understand she has committed to UM...you done got yourself a ringer from what I saw.

    Checked her stats from a couple seasons ago...19 SOG...19 Goals! Hahahaha!

    Stats for individual shots on goal for Minnesota high school hockey (both boys and girls) are a bit sketchy as you noticed.

    she will pair very well with Zumwinkle who has the same sort of shot and may be a quicker skater. They are going to hurt a lot of players who block shots I am afraid.

    If you would care to get a look at both Oden and Zumwinkle, Edina and Breck have a game scheduled tonight at Braemar Ice Arena, at 6:00PM. Thinking about taking that in myself.

    If you are not here you are missing the best HS girls game I have ever see. Edina has team speed on all 3 lines and is driving a very good Breck crazy.

    Very physical also but clean. B broke out to a 3-0 lead but E has been relentless and at the end of 2 it is 3-2.
