Breck Hockey Wants 1 More Shot At STA

ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — The Minnesota state boys hockey tournament begins on Wednesday and in Class A, Breck is back and taking on Marshall (14-10-1) to open it.

Breck is aiming to get to the title game and get one more shot at their crosstown rivals.

Practicing in March and playing at the Xcel Energy Center is a celebrated part of the winter months for Breck’s seniors – something they want to pass onto the next group.

“You’re never going to forget it,” Thomas Lindstrom said. “It’s an experience every kid playing high school hockey in Minnesota wishes they could go through.”

What they have here at Breck is a philosophy that on the ice they will play an aggressive style that’s offensively minded.

“We got guys who will step in and realize it’s their turn — scoring goals has never been a problem for us,” said coach Les Larson.

Breck is unseeded (24-3-1), and the Cadets are seeded first in the Class A tourney at 24-2-2. This season’s also the last time St. Thomas Academy plays in the small school bracket – they move up to Class AA next year.

“I think I’ve played in one-goal games every time I’ve played against them,” Matt Colford said. “It’ll be a battle. It’ll be great to get a win against them and go out on top.”
