Rochester native Jim Johannson -- who played in two Olympic Games for Team USA and went on to a two-decade career at USA Hockey -- received a high honor Thursday. Johannson, who passed away in 2018, has been elected to the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame's Class of 2022.
Jens Richards was a standout for two seasons with the Northstar Christian Academy team in Alexandria, then for two seasons with the Austin Bruins. On Friday, he accomplished another goal by committing to play Division I college hockey at the University of Vermont.
Zach Wiese carried on the Rochester Grizzlies' tradition of strong goaltending in the 2021-22 season, leading the franchise to its first-ever Fraser Cup championship, as postseason champions of the North American 3 Hockey League. Now he's made more franchise history, becoming the first Grizzlies player to commit to a Division I college. And it's not just any D1 program. It's the home-state University of Minnesota.
Brody Lamb flourished in the second half of his first full season with the United States Hockey League's Green Bay Gamblers. His strong play at the highest level of junior hockey convinced University of Minnesota coach Bob Motzko to bring the Byron native to campus this fall and join a program coming off a conference championship and a Frozen Four appearance.
Rochester native Mike Aikens has guided the Anchorage Wolverines to the North American Hockey League's Robertson Cup, the league's final four tournament, in the franchise's first year of existence. He's done it with some names familiar to southeastern Minnesota hockey fans: Albert Lea's Campbell Cichosz, a Minnesota State commit, and former Rochester Grizzlies Collin Pederson (an Owatonna native) and Shane Soderwall.
NHL
The Minnesota Wild have been a franchise for more than two decades. And no matter who the face of the franchise has been, he historically hasn't had a lot of help in the postseason.
NHL
From a terrible night on special teams to a sterling playoff debut by St. Louis goalie Ville Husso, nothing went right for the Minnesota Wild in Game 1 of a best-of-7 NHL Western Conference first-round playoff series on Monday at Xcel Energy Center.
The Austin Bruins took a two-goal lead into the third period of an NAHL playoff game Friday night, against a team that they had beaten eight out of 12 times this year. The Bruins lost that lead and Game 1 of the best-of-5 series against Aberdeen.
Anthony Menghini needed little time to become a prolific goal scorer in the North American Hockey League. The Brainerd native and former standout at Northstar Christian Academy in Alexandria has a team-leading 20 goals, as well as 31 points, in 37 games for the playoff-bound Bruins.
Former Rochester Mayo and Shattuck St. Mary's standout hockey player Maddox Fleming is excelling with the USHL's Sioux Falls Stampede this spring. The Notre Dame commit could also be selected in July's NHL Draft.
