State of Hockey Preview and Predictions

By Tony Scott, 08/07/15, 1:00AM CDT


'02 Euro Red push for Summer Supremecy

'02 Euro Red looks to stake their claim on the State of Hockey this weekend

Look for Wiz Wyatt Winner Matthew Gleason to strike this familiar post this weekend in the State of Hockey Showdown

01 Invite Teams: Golden Bears, Tommy Chicago, Total Hockey Fusion and Warrior.

Outlook: Tommy Chicago has a nice team lead by former Gopher Scott Bell behind the bench. Watch out for Robert Christy and Matt Gleason - these two make a great 1-2 punch for Coach Bell. Look for great pool play games in this field...all teams are fairly even with some star power on their top lines. The Golden Bears are collection of players made up of mostly Machine Black players...this team can really get after it.

Prediction: Tommy Chicago

02: Euro American Red, Steeldogs, Warrior, and Magicians

Outlook: Euro Red is the class of this field. With such standouts as Ethan Cumming and Jack Smith from St. Cloud and Kyle Kukkonen and Connor Kelley from Maple Grove, the Reds will be tough to beat. The Magicians are a fun team to watch, they have some stars of their own in Matt Beatty and Nick Speltz from Prior Lake. 

Prediction: Euro Red

03: Steeldogs, Total Hockey Fusion, Magicians, MN Muskies, and Tommy Chicago's

Outlook: The Steeldogs are very good Invite team that has some great individual stars like Wiz Wyatt Winner Tyler Haskins and Joe Palodichuk up front and some great depth and big goalie Marko Belak from Woodbury. They will be challenged by a young MN Muskies team, the Magicians and Total Hockey Fusion. We look for it to be a race for second place between THF and the Muskies.

Prediction: Steeldogs

Jayden Veney from Tommy Chicago's was the Warrior Cup MVP in April

04 Invite: Euro Red, Steeldogs, Magicians, Tommy Chicago's and Warrior

Outlook: The Steeldogs have a great group of skaters including Dylan Godbout and Anthony Madigan up front and Reid Kluender on the blue line. The Euro Red has some talent too, Josh Giuliani and August Falloon are guys who can fill up the net quickly. They will contend for hardware on Sunday at BIG.

Prediction: Steeldogs

05 Invite: Magicians, Euro Red, Steeldogs and Tommy Chicago's

Outlook: All of the teams in this group have had success already in their young careers. Tommy Chicago's won the Warrior Cup this Spring and this Euro Group has Dawson Jenson, who cannot be missed when he is on the ice. Ty Hansen and Jayden Veney are both goal scorers for TC...they will be tough to beat.

Prediction: Tommy Chicago's

Anthony Madigan scores last weekend for No Regretzkies (AKA Steeldogs)
