News & Notes

2016-2017 will be the 57th season of Hill-Murray hockey.

For more info on the program and current season, please visit Hill-Murray Athletics or the Boys Hockey Hub.

Jake Guentzel, who played for Hill-Murray in the 2011 and 2012 seasons, on November 21 became the seventh Pioneer to play in the NHL, and scored a goal on his very first shift.

That's a school record for ties set in just the season's eighth game. Hill-Murray has not defeated Eden Prairie since 1992 (0-5-1 since 2009).

Here's a new site from John Vosejpka, the official scorer of the state tournament: Results, Records and Rarities of the Minnesota State Hockey Tournaments.

Hill-Murray is the 2017 Metro East Conference Champion.

Jake Begley is one of two Frank Brimsek finalists.

2017 Playoff Results

By defeating White Bear Lake 1-0, Tartan earned the school's first section quarterfinal victory since 2007 as a member of Section 2. That streak included a loss as the #1 seed in 2009. So Hill-Murray will not play White Bear Lake in the playoffs for the fourth consecutive year. Between 1984 and 2013, the schools never went more than one season without a head-to-head playoff match.

For the fourth consecutive year, Hill-Murray will play Stillwater in the section final. Stillwater has scored a total of two regulation goals while winning two of the previous three.

Hill-Murray is the 2017 Section 4AA Champion.

Jake Begley is the winner of the Frank Brimsek Award given to the state's top senior goalie. Begley broke the school record for career save percentage (minimum 20 games) with a three year mark of 0.927, shattering the old record of 0.914 held by Jeff Poeschl.
