The OHS Boys Hockey team finishes their season strong as they head into sections. They currently have a record of 17-5-2. As of right now, the OHS Boys Hockey team is sitting in third place in their section with Northfield and Rochester Century/JM in front of them.

The Huskies have had a strong season and bring many goals into sections. Senior goalie Brennan Sletten said, “I think everyone on the team has the same goal and that is to go to state.” The boys’ hockey team enters sections next week where they will most likely play Farmington or Rochester Century/JM. 

 Sletten said, “They will be hard games but I think every team in the section is beatable.” 

The Huskies are battling in the Big 9 against some tough competitors who they have seen throughout the year.

Head coach Denis Will said, “Nobody has dominated anyone, so we are right in the hunt.” They expect to make a deep run in sections and maybe even state. 

The boys’ hockey team has had many big accomplishments this year including going 8-0 to start the season. 

Sletten said, “Although we had a good start to the season, our season will be remembered not by how it went but by how it ended.” They have gained a lot of confidence throughout the season and will carry that with them through the postseason. 

Nobody has dominated anyone, so we are right in the hunt.”

— Coach Will

Their confidence has helped them push themselves to achieve their high goals for the postseason. Coach Will said, “We are clicking at the right time, we are getting some good goaltending and scoring some more goals. We got a jolt in the arm when we beat Northfield and we realized that we can play with any of these teams.”

 

They now look to sections with hopeful eyes and high confidence.

Sletten said, “The team definitely has enough talent to go far. With that said, if we play our best games I expect to win sections and make it to state.” As they finish their season strong they continue to work hard to accomplish their shared goal of making it to state. 

Their last regular season game is on Saturday, Feb. 17 at 7:00 p.m. at the Four Seasons Arena against Winona. The first round of sections is on Thursday, Feb. 22 the location and opponent are still to be determined.
