January was a very good month for the Andover boys’ hockey program. The team entered the second week of February on a nine-game winning streak following back-to-back losses to Forest Lake and Blaine to open the new year.
After graduating 13 players last season, Andover boys’ hockey had a few openings in its lineup. One game into the season, those varsity newcomers seem to have things figured out after a 7-3 win at Hopkins Nov. 26.
It looks like Blaine should challenge for another conference title and perhaps a section title, returning several of its key contributors from last season. Spring Lake Park moved sections and will not have to face St. Thomas Academy or the other Class A powers that made up the section bracket each year.
