“La Vaque and Nelson have produced the most amazing book
about the boys’ state high school hockey championship.
Their countless hours of research results in a compelling and riveting
walk down memory lane. Once you start paging through, you will not want

to put it down. It is a fantastic history of the tournament and a must read.”

— Lou Nanne, former NHL player and general manager
and member of the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame

“I get chills reading this book. Some of my best memories as a hockey player are playing in the state tournament and Loren and David do a great job recapturing those moments.”

— T.J. Oshie, two-time state champion with Warroad
and Stanley Cup  
champion with the Washington Capitals

“The state tournament went from an event beloved by Minnesota’s hockey cult in an old arena in St. Paul to a statewide preoccupation starting in 1969, when it moved to an NHL arena in Bloomington, and the magic of small vs. big — Warroad and Henry Boucha vs. the Edina assembly line of great players — took center stage. La Vaque and Nelson bring that drama alive with inside tales and repeat that superb work with so many other state tourney moments.”

 — Patrick Reusse, Star Tribune
