Hockey Day 2010

By Kyle Stevens
TRF, Hibbing and Hermantown, Minn.

Hockey Day 2010 has now passed. Though the weather did not cooperate, the talent certainly did.
Hermantown fans came out in force to support the home team against Eden Prairie, and the community came together just to get it done.
After two successful, and frigid years in Baudette, Hockey Day spent a year in the Metro in 2009. It's first year on the North Shore has to be deemed a success, even with the rain, snow and sleet that nearly destroyed the playing surface.
Much like last year, when Minnesota Sports Online took a trip of their own. A three day, three city trip was planned again this year.
Thursday night we were in Thief River Falls, Hibbing on Friday and Hermantown on Saturday. And just like last year, we had a blast. The hockey highlight was getting to see Ralph Engelstad Arena in Thief River Falls. Hard to imagine a better venue for high school hockey.

From StarTribune.com: The Royals can score quickly. They scored two goals in a 21-second span in the second period and three times in 53 seconds in the third period in defeating the Hilltoppers in nonconference play. Senior forward Archie Skalbeck had a hat trick, including two power-play goals. Senior forward Zachary Zoidis had two goals. Senior goaltender Alexander Fons made 25 saves for the shutout.
From StarTribune.com: Kyle Rau is en fuego. The junior center scored two unassisted goals as the Eagles topped the Hawks in a battle of third-ranked teams on Saturday in Hermantown. Eden Prairie is ranked No. 3 in Class 2A while Hermantown holds down the same position in Class 1A. Rau's second goal with 5 minutes, 18 seconds remaining turned out to be the game winner. In his past seven games, Rau has 17 goals and 13 assists for 30 points. He has scored at least one goal in every game during that stretch, and has two four-goal games.
Hermantown def. Duluth, 4-2 (girls)
From DuluthNewsTribune.com: Proctor-Hermantown-Marshall scored the first three goals and added an empty-net goal late to defeat Duluth 4-2 in a high school girls hockey game, completing Saturday’s Hockey Day in Minnesota events outdoors behind Hermantown Ice Arena.
Abby Miner, Rachel Rossiter and Justina Lindberg scored second-period goals after the first half of the game was slowed due to a buildup of snow on the ice surface.
With the win, the Mirage (16-6-2, 5-1) clinched the Lake Superior Conference title.
