"I felt we made a mistake in building a baseball field. I thought that should have been the ice skating rink, because I think hockey in this state right now, not just hockey, but ice skating, if you come up to our office building at 6:00 in the morning, some mornings you can't get a parking spot because parents have taken their kids up here to skate...I think hockey will be a great addition to our intercollegiate program. [The Pegula gift] is a great, great gift. And I think very far-sighted and I'm really pleased with it." - Joe Paterno

Minnetonka fell flat in a showdown with perennial contender BSM, one of the lead dogs in the chase to dethrone the two-time defending state champs... otherwise it was largely business as usual for the Skippers, now 9-1-0, with Bowman and Amy Petersen regularly lighting up scoresheets.

Ehresmann continued in her 50-50ish rotation that still sees Sydney Rossman get most of the big games, including the BSM disappointment that dropped Minnetonka out of the top spot in most statewide rankings... for her part, Ehresmann collected a pair of wins over the last two weeks to build her season record to 5-0-0.



Remi Martin

Defender
Colorado Tigers 19U/Foothills Flyers MM AA
5'6" // Littleton, CO
Class of 2014
DOB 7/15/1996




After a 1-4-0 showing at the Two Nations Series in Toronto from December 7-9, the Tigers beat the Colorado Select's 19UAA team 5-1 on December 15th... a second game against the Select as well as one against the Rocky Mountain Lynx were scheduled for the 22nd and 23rd, respectively, but were left unreported... the next major showcase for the Tigers is the Northwood Academy Tournament January 18-20... things are also quiet with Martin's boys team, as the Flyers have been out of action since November 30th.

Edina was suffering through an uncharacteristic four-game winless skid (and just two wins in eight, if extending it back further) before Nielsen helped stabilize things in a big victory over Burnsville... despite the ups and downs of a 6-4-3 overall record, the Hornets are still respected as a threat in most corners - including Minnesota publication Let's Play Hockey, which tabbed Edina as the eighth best team in Class AA on December 19th.

Paniccia was successful in holding up her end of a rotation with Stephanie Loukes against Guelph, although Loukes responded with a great outing of her own in the next game... the Hornets are 7-2-4 in the Lower Lakes Female Hockey League, good for third in the Central Division... Appleby College is 4-1-0 to sit on top of the CISAA standings and has only allowed nine goals this season.

With eight points this week, Petersen just edged out linemate Bowman's seven... Petersen also leads the overall scoring race between Minnetonka's two big guns, 29 to 23.



Kelly Seward

Defender
Nichols School/Buffalo Bisons 19U
5'9" // Williamsville, NY
Class of 2013
DOB 6/7/1995




Nichols School is 8-3-0 following a trip to the Deerfield Invitational on December 21st and 22nd that saw losses to National Sports Academy (3-1) and Rice (2-0) bookended by wins over Deerfield (8-2) and Wyoming Seminary (6-0)... prior to that showcase, Nichols posted wins against Scanlan Academy on December 14th by a 2-1 score and against Bishop Strachan on December 17th by a 7-4 score... meanwhile the Buffalo Bisons went 3-0-0 during this Commit Cycle period to improve to 21-10-1 overall with two wins against Scanlan Academy on December 15th (6-0 and 3-1) as well as one against the Rochester Edge 17Us on December 16th.

Lakeville North had been on track to the tune of four consecutive wins before staggering to a loss without Vetter in the lineup... the Panthers are tied for third place (with Bloomington Jefferson) in a highly-competitive South Suburban League, three points behind first-place Lakeville South... Vetter's five goals and 14 points are both good for second on the team.
