USA Hockey is implementing a new set of policies starting with the 2012-13 season called The SafeSport Program. The purpose of this program is to create the safest possible environment for participation in hockey. There will be a new position created to oversee the implementation of this program for each association. Doug Howe will fill this position until the program is fully implemented.
The comprehensive program is focused on creating an environment that will deter abusers and assist those in the hockey community in recognizing, reducing and responding to allegations or suspected abuse. You can read about the program by clicking on the link below.
If you observe anyone violating a SafeSport Program policy, contact Doug at email@example.com.

Three for Three!
The Minnetonka Squirt C Black squad has entered three tournamnts this season, and has come home with a Championship Trophy in all three! The most recent, Breezy Point, came after the boys went 5-0 in their games over 3 days. The boys defeated Eagan 3-2, St. Paul Highland 5-2, Sartell (who had just come off winning a 16 team tournament a week
before) 4-3, Chaska/Chan 3-2, and then finsihed off the championship game over Burnsville 11-2 in what could be called one of our best games of the year. All members of the team contributed all weekend long, and the boys had a great time up at Breezy Point!
The Minnetonka Squirt B White team traveled to Eveleth and won the 2nd Annual Hockey Hall of Fame Tournament. Minnetonka was one of two teams from the Cities with the remaining six begin from “up North.”
In the opening game against Eveleth White, the boys got down early (which seemed to be the theme) but they fought back to make it only a one goal deficit going into the 3rd. The boys owned the 3rd period scoring 4 times to win 6-4.
After a trip through the US Hockey Hall of Fame they defeated Minneapolis in a tight game. Again the boys were behind early but ended up tying the game after two periods. Again, they owned the 3rd period and punched their ticket into the Championship game by winning 4-2.
In the Championship game, Eveleth Black came out strong and showed the hometown crowd that they wanted to claim the Championship trophy. After trailing by two goals early, the boys came back to make it a tie game after the first. This time they didn’t wait till the third to pour it on and enjoyed a 3 goal lead going into the final period and ended up winning 9-5.
There were many great things about this tournament. The boys got to play in the famous Hippodrome, tour the US Hockey Hall of Fame, see a lot of US and Minnesota Hockey history and get a few pictures with the big stick. The best was how they all contributed to beating 3 good teams and winning a Championship trophy. The coaches certainly enjoyed the wins as well but they really took satisfaction in watching the boys come back from a deficit in each game, take the lead and never give it back. They played as a TEAM and celebrated as a TEAM!!
Way to go boys!
Two for Two!
The Minnetonka Squirt C Black team won its second tournament in as many tries this season at the Bloomington Tournament. There was a tough field with Jefferson, Kennedy, Edina, Chaska/Chan, Burnsville, Prior Lake, and Rosemount.
In the opening game against Chaska/Chanhassen, Walter Johnson started us off on the right foot scoring the first goal of the game 20 seconds in. Wyatt Smitts took it from there, scoring SIX times, to make the final score 7-1.
In the second game versus Kennedy, a team we had scrimmaged and tied twice, the whole team dug in and and contributed to a fantastic 11-1 win! Despite he lopsided score, goalie Anders Irene made several great saves, including a spectacular glove save on a breakaway early in the first period that really helped set the tone for the rest of the game.
In the finals against a very tough Prior Lake squad, Minnetonka struck very early again in the first minute. We ran into a very tough goalie, and the two teams put on a very tight and entertaining game, with the score 2-1 going into the 3rd period. Tonka made it 3-1 early in the 3rd, and capped it off with a late insurance goal to make the final score 4-1 to net our second Championship of the year!
It was wonderful to see each member of the roster contribute to this great tournament win!
Minnetonka's PeeWee B2 Black team rose to the challenge to win the Shakopee Tournament this weekend and claim their 3rd tournament 1st place title this season.
In three nail biting games which were almost too much for their beloved fans, PWB2 Black beat Minneapolis Storm holding onto the lead even after the Storm pulled their goalie with 37 secs to go, triumphed over Edina Gold in an equally close fought game and finally pulled away from Shakopee in the Championship Game to win 5-2!
Minnetonka PeeWee C Black team traveled to Brainerd, MN to play several Metro teams in the Breezy Point tournament. Tonka went 4-0-1 with a hard fought tie against Woodbury whom they expected to see in the championship game. Woodbury, however, was upset by an inspired Crow River team that fought its way to the finals. Hat Tricks were made by Tonka’s Luke Langevin, Parker Rosacker, and J.J. Schechtman with everyone on the team getting points along the way making this a real team effort and victory. The only controversy was the Tournament scheduling which required most of the teams to take Friday off from school to participate. None of the players complained but there was some grumbling from the parents. Breezy Point, however, always puts on a first class tournament that is a highlight for so many teams each year.
The Minnetonka PW B2 Blue "Warriors" claimed the title this weekend at the Anoka Classic. The tournament win adds to what has been a very successful season for the Warriors. Minnetonka beat Champlin Park Blue, who came into the game with only 1 loss in District 10 play, in the first game of the tourney. The Tonka boys started slow, leading 1-0 after one period, but shook off their rust and cruised to an easy 8-1 win.
Tournament co-host Anoka White, who is undefeated in D10 play, was the opponent for the quarterfinal game. The Warriors applied consistent pressure and used their advantage in team speed to wear down Anoka, eventually winning the game 7-0. The defensive effort was impressive as the boys clogged lanes and back checked all game long helping goalie Jake Koonce post the shutout.
The semifinal brought on a familiar foe, Edina Green. The two teams play in the PW B2 National division of D6, they've met once in league play and also met in early December for the championship of the Duluth Invitational. Minnetonka has only suffered two losses all season, both to this Edina Green team and both by one goal. Both teams knew this would be a 3 period battle, and it proved to be exactly that. Edina jumped out to a 1-0 lead as they caught Tonka in a line change and made the Warriors pay. Tonka responded less than a minute later to tie the game at 1. Minnetonka stepped up their game and really took control in the 2nd period, scoring the only goals of the period (3) to take a 4-1 lead into the final period. Even with the 3 goal advantage, the Warriors knew this game was far from over. To their credit, Edina played with a sense of urgency in the third and chipped the lead all the way down to a single goal with half the period still to play. Play was back & forth for the final five minutes of the game, with both teams just missing on scoring chances. Tonka survived the late rally, winning the game 4-3 and moved on to the title game. These teams still have 2 league games to play against each other, those are sure to be exciting as well.
Anoka Maroon, the other tourney co-host and also undefeated in D10 play, was the opponent for the championship. Anoka had some serious size, and a great home ice crowd on their side. The game started out on the very physical side as Anoka tried to use their size advantage to their benefit. The Warriors didn't back down, kept playing hard, and once again used their speed advantage to wear down another team. The Warriors were swarming the net early in the game, getting many good chances, but the Anoka goalie made numerous nice saves to keep them in it. Tonka eventually snuck one by and led 1-0 after one. Tonka started to pull away in the second, leading 3-0 late into the period when Anoka scored it's only goal, a controversial one, to make it 3-1 after two. One of the referees blew his whistle inadvertently while Anoka was on an odd man rush. The Anoka player kept going toward the Tonka net, as the Tonka players pulled up after hearing the whistle (including the goalie). The Anoka player put the puck in the net a good 4-5 seconds after the blown whistle. After discussing with his partner, the ref changed his mind and allowed the goal. Obviously the play didn't effect the outcome of the game, but it left everyone in attendance wondering how that goal was allowed. Minnetonka went on to dominate the final period and pulled away to win by a final of 5-1, Champs!!!!!
The Squirt C Black played STMA to win 10-2 in first game with Josh Palmer in Goal. Matthew Kelly had a natural hat trick in one shift (41 seconds). In the second game they won 4-3 over Rosemount with Anders Irene in goal to end their win streak. In the championship game against Lakeville the offense came alive to win 14-2. Josh Palmer was in goal to seal the game, and many players scored as the passing game was extroardinary!
A big thank you to all for helping with the Adopt a Family Service Project! What a success!! I wanted to take a minute and recap tonight’s events:
We asked the kids to take ownership of our project. We broke them into groups, and assigned each group a family member to shop for. Our family of 6 consisted of 4 boys (ages 5, 9, 14 and 16) and a Mom and Dad. We gave them some instructions, a budget and some general guidelines to follow and sent them on their way.
We were incredibly impressed with the way in which the boys conducted themselves, the seriousness in which they took their assignment, and the thoughtfulness in which they chose gifts for their family member. We were amazed by their ability not to get caught up in “shopping” but were focused on the needs of a family who could use some help this time of year. I’m not sure how much conversation you had with your player prior to the event, but you can all be proud of their conduct throughout the evening. (both at Target and at Davanni’s)
It was a fun, team-bonding experience, and a privilege for us to get to know the boys a little better. Thank you to all for supporting this project and contributing financially.
The PeeWee C White team took the championship at the Breezy Point 16 team tournament December 7-9, winning five out of five games!
Taking the top seed of their pool they battled Shakopee, Anoka and Farmington with 26 total goals; only 2 goals allowed and a shut-out against Anoka that included not a single shot on goal by the opponent. Moving on to the elimination game Tonka was down 1-0 in the third against Lakeville North; took over with less than three minutes and scored two goals to win the game.
The championship game was won 4 – 3 against Forest Lake on Sunday to end a great weekend of hockey for the team – way to go PWC White, we’re proud of you!!
The 10U A team had a very successful Cake Eater Tournament. The girls finished 3-1 for the tournament and took home 3rd place, losing only to the eventual champion Stillwater.
They opened the tournament against tournament host and rival Edina Green. The girls proved there was no Thanksgiving hangover as they came out skating hard for their early morning matchup and cruised to a 4-0 win. Great puck movement, nice passing, excellent defense and goaltending lead to the opening victory. Brynn Dulac was in the nets, posting the shutout!!!
In game two they faced Stillwater. The Ponies were big, fast and physical and made things very difficult on Tonka. The girls fought hard, but had a difficult time finding open ice and eventually fell 3-0. Stillwater would go undefeated for the tournament. The girls are hoping to see them again down the road.
Game three was an excellent defensive battle against a very good Osseo/Maple Grove team. The teams were very evenly matched and both goaltenders made some nice saves to keep it deadlocked at 0-0 well into the third period. Wtih less than 3 minutes remaining in the game Rory "Dangles" Guilday got the puck in her own defensive zone and weaved the length of the ice to put home the game winner.......Tonka wins 1-0. There was a huge flurry of action in front of Tonka netminder Bridget Orr in the final minute of the game. She held her own, with help from many of her sprawling teammates to get a shutout of her own.
The 3rd place game brought on our neighbor foe, Eden Prairie. The Tonka girls came out of the gates hot, leading 4-1 after one period. But, give credit to EP for hanging in there and battling the whole game. Eventually they were able to tie the game 4-4 midway through the 3rd period. In a play very similar to the OMG game, "Dangles" Guilday found a loose puck at mid-ice and was able to weave her way to the front of the net where she hit the mark with a high shot over the goalies glove.......game winner!!!!!
It was a weekend of great team play, many girls contributed with goals, assists, defensive plays, and hustle. Great job girls, awesome start to the season!!!!!
