Hockey605 names Notable Players from Boys Varsity tournament.

Hockey605 was at ground zero for the Boys Varsity State Tournament last weekend.  And we saw every moment of every game.  There were a few rough spots – sure – like the entire town of Brookings being without Internet on Friday morning.  We literally had enough time to set up the Hockey605 LIVE Streams and then, well, nothing.  We did the get games on video, however, and posted them up for all to see.  Then on Saturday, one of many inconsiderate people who managed to crawl through barricades and obstacles set up by our Brookings hosts managed to cut power to our LIVE Stream equipment.  We worked frantically to get the stream back up, but many fans missed almost a period.  And, again, we did the get the video on that game.

So as YOUR representative there – after all, YOU are Hockey605 – and witnessing every pass, every penalty, every great play and every mistake over the course of three days, we are in a unique position to recognize some of the very special players we witnessed.  And we came together as a team to recognize those players who are named here.  NOTE:  This is our team’s observations over the three tournament games and NOT a reflection on the entire season.  We are absolutely certain that you may not agree with us on which players did not make the list.  But how could anyone disagree about those who did make it.  Here is our Notable Player list – in no particular order – for the Boys Varsity Tournament.

Boys Varsity tournament promises to be one of best ever.

The parity among the varsity teams this year is making the upcoming tournament even more interesting than it usually is.  Brookings is getting ready for the teams and the fans.  We got a chance to visit a little bit with Kelly Koenig of Brookings Ice Skating Association about some of the new features of the tournament this year.

Meet the newest addition to your Hockey605 Crew!

What would you do if you found a seasoned media person who loved hockey as much as we do at Hockey605?  You would get them on board!  And that’s exactly what we did.  We would like to introduce you to Dakota Case – media man and hockey lover.
