Karl Schuettler from our HS Hockey Podcast laid down his pre-season Top 10 last week. Here is a glance at those 10 teams. To get a more detailed look at his reasoning, plus 11-25 view this post on the HS Hockey Forum.

Class A

East Side Hockey comes in at #3 to start the season

Rank Team Section
1.      St. Cloud Cathedral 6A
2.      Hermantown 7A
3.      East Grand Forks 8A
4.      Mahtomedi 4A
5.      Warroad 8A
6.      Greenway 7A
7.      North Branch 5A
8.      Alexandria 6A
9.      Tartan 4A
10.   Delano 2A


Here is our HS Hockey Podcast pre-season best guess at a top 10. The top five spots are pretty solid, with six through 10 a bit more of a grab bag of teams that could challenge. The addition of Tartan and Armstrong-Cooper to Class A will be great for competitive balance.
