Class 2A

Eden Prairie (17-4-2) received 10 first place votes and remained ranked No. 1 in the Class 2A state coaches' poll after winning its last two games by a combined score of 24-2.

The Eagles' winning streak extended to 11 games with back-to-back blowouts against unranked Hopkins and Benilde-St. Margaret's. Notre Dame recruit Nicky Leivermann recorded eight points (one goal, seven assists) in a 16-1 win over Hopkins. 

The rest of the Class 2A top eight remained the same as last week. No. 2 Edina bounced back from its Feb. 4 loss to Eden Prairie with a 5-3 win over No. 12 Minnetonka. Sophomore University of Minnesota recruit Ben Brinkman notched two goals and an assist. 

No. 5 Stillwater (20-3-0) made a push to rejoin the Class 2A top three, but even the Ponies' wins over Forest Lake, Woodbury and Cretin-Derham Hall by a combined score of 26-5 were not enough to push past any of the higher-ranked teams.  

Junior Lucas McGregor tallied two goals and three assists in No. 7 Centennial's 10-2 win over Irondale. McGregor is eleventh in Class 2A with 43 points (22 goals, 21 assists). Centennial (18-4-1) is 6-1-1 in its last eight games.

The only change in the Class 2A top ten was Maple Grove climbing from No. 11 to No. 9 after beating No. 14 Duluth East, 6-2. The Crimson (17-6-0) lost to third-ranked Elk River the following game.

Hill-Murray continued its decline after being ranked as high as No. 1 on Jan. 25. The Pioneers (15-4-4) dropped to No. 10 after losing to No. 8 St. Thomas Academy, 5-1.

Grand Rapids fell from No. 10 to No. 13, allowing Moorhead and Minntonka to each move up one spot to No. 11 and No. 12, respectively. Bemidji (13-10-1) jumped from No. 20 to No. 17 despite back-to-back losses to Class 1A-No. 1 Hermantown and Class 2A-No. 11 Moorhead.

Class 1A

No. 1 Hermantown (21-1-1) extended its unbeaten streak to 22 games and received 10 first place votes in the Class 1A coach's poll. 

The Hawks' only loss, 5-1 to Class 2A Wayzata, came in their first game of the season. The following game they tied Class 2A-No. 20 Lakeville South and have beaten every opponent since by a combined score of 135-32.

The Class 1A top four remained the same with Breck, Delano and St. Paul Academy still chasing Hermantown.

Mahtomedi (12-11-1) jumped from seventh to fifth in the coaches' poll after beating former No. 5-ranked St. Cloud Cathedral, 3-1. Senior Luke Posner recorded two goals and an assist in the win. St. Cloud Cathedral (16-6-2) dropped to sixth following the loss.

St. Paul Johnson (15-6-2) dropped from No. 11 to No. 14 following its third straight loss. Greenway (17-7-1) and Northfield (16-4-3) moved up in the rankings to No. 11 and No. No. 13 as a result.
