Griffin Streeter with one of his three goals Friday.
The YHH PeeWee Challenge showcased several top players from all over Minnesota. They stood out with talent, they stood out with effort, and some even stood on their head. Here are the 10 boys who were selected to our All Tournament Team:
Charlie Strobel, Stillwater - Outstanding skater that plays with an edge...had three goals in four games.
Noah Tussey, Stillwater - strong athletic kid who has a great nose for the puck, will help the Ponies this year at PWAA.
Billy Rose, White Bear Lake - great combination of speed and finesse...definitely a fun player to watch.
Ben Dexheimer, Edina - versatile player who made things happen on both sides of the ice for the Huskies.
Basil Kamsheh, Bloomington - Played four halves and allowed zero goalies...strong goalie with the perfect combination of size and ability.
Ryan Mulrenin, Wayzata - the new kid in town, made a name himself showing signs of raw ability, especially with the puck on his stick.
Will Magnuson, Chaska/Chan - great two way player, was tough to handle in tight spots.
Nolan Krenzen, Duluth - had a great weekend on the blue line for the Bulldogs...has a great hockey IQ.
Brett Oberle, Woodbury - great speed and hands, was a constant scoring threat for the Irish...had four goals.
Christian Miller, Coleraine - son of former Mr. Hockey Kris Miller, played a rugged style of hockey and was great with the puck in both zones.
Griffin Streeter, Minnetonka - second leading scorer with six points, showed several signs of brilliance on Friday and Saturday.
Mark Overman, Edina - big power Forward who continues to establish himself as a player to watch this year at PeeWees. Had three goals and a ton more chances.
Owen Neuharth, Prior Lake - had three points in four games...the kid makes his presence felt on every shift. Lacks size, but not skill or determination. Should have a great year for the Lakers this year.
MVP: Matthew Gleason, St. Paul - not much more can be said for Gleason. He was brilliant the entire weekend. In addition to leading the tournament in scoring he scored late dramatic goals, goals in shootouts, and even was spotted selling popcorn in Rink 3 between games.
