    I’ve reffed this kid the last three years. Kid is special! Had a great season and now looking to win a state championship this weekend despite 90% of a sold out Xcel energy Center rooting against him (Edina and the private schools are public enemy #1 in MN hockey lol). He’s a good one and will likely win Mr. Hockey. Winners of Mr Hockey in last 10 years include McDonagh, Leddy, Bjugstad, Tufte and Mittelstadt.

    He and Mittelstadt would make a nice line with the Gophers next year. I think Sammy is a faster and better skater, Casey has the better hands and vision. Both are pretty damn good. I think TBL have themselves a nice little lottery ticket. His brothers were very good players , also, but they didn't stick around in HS long enough to show this well.

    Sammy Walker wins Mr Hockey which is the most prestigious award a high school hockey player can win. Brian Lee announced him as the winner. Brian is awkward AF.

    Turns out that Sammy isn't going to the Gophers, after all. Not sure if grades were an issue, or a clash with new incoming coach at MN, Bob Mosko. I would guess the former...hard to believe that Mosko wouldn't welcome a talent like Walker to the team.

    Not sure if he will be playing USHL or CHL.

    Hopefully this kid pans out, from my limited viewings of him his speed stands out.
