The teams will play for the League Championship Taconite Trophy, as well as the right to play in next weekend’s Minnesota District Playoffs for the right to play in the USA Hockey National Tournaments in April. In the Girls 14U and Youth 15 classifications, the playoff champion, runner up, third place team and consolation champion will advance to next weekend’s playoffs. In the Youth 14U classification, the playoff champion, runner up and third place team will advance and will be joined by the Shattuck-St. Mary’s 14U team.
“SCM has a great history of streaming events in Minnesota, and we are excited to have them stream our Tier 1 playoffs,” said High Performance Director, Mike MacMillan. “The competition and talent level in our Fall Leagues has been incredible and we’re thrilled that people who can’t attend the games will still be able to see our kids compete for the right to go to the National Tournament.”
