The North St. Paul boys hockey program looks like it is in good shape down the road. This season the North St. Paul B1 Bantam team (ages 13-15) is on a roll. Recently they capped winning efforts by going 4-0 in the Northern Regional Tournament and qualified for a berth in the State Tournament.

The North St. Paul team has posted a record of 32-11-6, but since Jan. 5, they have gone 21-1-1. During the years the B1’s were second in the Schwan’s Cup, took third place in the Elk River Twaddle, were second in District 2 League play, won first place in the District 2 playoffs and capped it off with a first place in the North Regional tourney.
