    In 2008, The Breakdown published its first edition of the “Minnesota high school hockey encyclopedia,” a nearly 250-page book that included everything you wanted to know about the 2008-09 hockey season.  We're back for a fifth campaign this winter with a preview that's even bigger and better than last season!

    The newest book includes team previews, preseason rankings, section previews, player profiles, feature stories, records and photos covering every program in the state.  And we mean EVERY program.  Please check out our order page to get your copy today!

    "The Breakdown has quickly established itself as the leader in offering the high school sports fan the most comprehensive preview information for their chosen sport. Minnesota's high school hockey coaches are thrilled to be a part of Breakdown's family of publications."  -- Ken Pauly, President, Minnesota Hockey Coaches Association
