High school hockey season is here
By Matt Suoja

Last year’s high school hockey season ended with a clash of local titans in the Class A State Championship game — Hermantown and Marshall.

Even though Hermantown won the game, Marshall always has this season to get payback (Jan. 3 they face each other once again).

The Northland boy’s hockey season is about to begin, with many teams hoping to change last year’s fortune.

Even with the loss of six strong players, Hunters assistant coach Bryan Lent believes the team will be strong once again (they finished last season with a 18-8-1 record).

“We’re expecting to be a contender with every team,” Lent said. “We’re a 20-win hockey team.”

Even though the Hunters lost players Aaron Kolquist, Ryan Kent, Alex Bushey, Ian Jensen, Luke Davis and Jack St. John-Stebe to graduation, the team has many returning players who hope to make an impact.

Some of the returning players this season include: Jake Johnson, senior, forward; Chris Stafne, senior, forward; Codie Hotchkin, junior, forward; Trent Johnson, senior, defenseman and senior defenseman Max Skarman.

“We continued to beef up our schedule,” Lent said. “Our conference is tough.”

Denfeld’s first home game of the season will be against Hermantown at 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29 at the DECC.
