I am guessing ducks will be 3 and kings go to 4. Pure speculation though.  I think the secret may be all the extra practice during the Kings AA1 team's monday night slot. The pond looked more crowded than a public session at LA live last night with a team and a half sharing half the ice. All that was missing was the Christmas tree in the middle.

How come the Minnesota teams aren't in the rankings?
That's like having Canadian rankings without any Ontario teams.

Minnesota and North Dakota do not conform to USA hockey.  If you look at the rankings there is a category for Minne-kota.  Growing up in Minnesota kids are placed by grade not birth year.  If you ever played the Squirt international tournament in North Dakota all the kids are a year older than our USA hockey teams based on when they started school

Thanks for the explanation.
It seemed strange to leave out of the rankings the state that is the hockey hotbed in the  US and turns out by far the most American nhlers.

MN and N Dakota birth year runs July 1 to June 30. Rest of USA is Jan 1 to Dec 31. They're still part of USA hockey but their oldest kids in every age group are 6 months older than the oldest kids in the same age group in other states so they don't rank them together. July through december 2006 born kids in MN are still in squirts, but are in Pee Wee everywhere else.

Suffering, failure, loneliness, sorrow, discouragement, and death will be part of your journey.

Good luck to both teams -- know some great kids on both squads.  Great to see the CA kids competing again like they did last year.
