Elite II League Completes 4th Successful Season

By Staff Reports, 11/06/08, 8:38AM CST


 The Elite II High School Hockey League was designed to give players an opportunity to develop their skills by playing a highly competitive, 16-18 game fall schedule in preparation for the high school hockey season. The State High School Hockey Coaches’ Association wanted to give the underclassmen the same great opportunity that the Upper Midwest Elite Hockey League has given the older players. Although the Elite II League has no affiliation with the Upper Midwest Elite Hockey League, we do have the same goals of developing great hockey players and keeping our state’s best high school hockey players in high school. Even though the Elite II League is designed for players that are not seniors, each team will be allowed to have a maximum of 4 senior skaters and 1 goalie playing each weekend. The league has been a tremendous success in its first four seasons allowing players to play with and against some of the best players in Minnesota, North Dakota, and Wisconsin.

The Section 6A/6AA team represented Minnesota in the Chicago Tournament this past weekend.
