More than 80 scouts packed into the Kennedy Recreation Center last year for the Michigan Interscholastic Hockey League (MIHL) Prep Hockey Showcase, and showcase officials are expecting as many or more this year. More than 43 top-ranked high school teams, with hockey players from Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and Ontario, are set to play several games over the four-day event, according to an MIHL release. "There's going to be a lot of great hockey and a lot of scouts come from all over the place," said Tim Beaker, Kennedy's operations manager.

Wyandotte Roosevelt stormed back from a three-goal deficit Wednesday night at home, but lost 4-3.
Wyandotte Roosevelt battled back from a three-goal deficit at home Wednesday night against Trenton, but was dropped 4-3 in overtime. The first goal of the night for the Trojans (10-1-0-1) came from senior defenseman Cory Dunn, who put the Bears (3-8) down 1-0 at the 8:24 mark of the first period. About three minutes later, a goal from senior forward Michael Lesko put Trenton up 2-0. Lesko’s goal prompted Roosevelt head coach Mike Quint to switch goaltenders, benching junior Dalan Bulchak in favor of sophomore Frank Cerulla. Trenton senior forward Corey Seychel scored less than one minute after the switch, giving the Trojans a commanding 3-0 lead. Momentum shifted to the Bears, however, as Cerulla then shut down the Trojans and the …

Players from the 2010-11 Wyandotte Roosevelt hockey team were recognized Friday night for the squad's state championship season.
The 2010-11 Wyandotte Roosevelt hockey team was honored Friday night at Yack Arena for its unforgettable state championship season.

Immediately following the introductions, banners recognizing last season’s Division 2 state title and regional championship were unveiled at the north end of the rink.

Unable to overcome three-first period goals by Trenton, Wyandotte Roosevelt was knocked off 5-1 Wednesday night on the road.
Trenton High School grabbed an early lead Wednesday night against Wyandotte Roosevelt and never let up, as the Bears were knocked off 5-1 on the road. The matchup was the first meeting of the season for the two teams, both of which are new members of the Michigan Interscholastic Hockey League. The last time Trenton (5-2) and Roosevelt (1-4) squared off was on Feb. 28, which was during last season’s district playoffs. That night the Bears skated to a 3-2 win, bouncing the Trojans from the postseason. Unfortunately for Wyandotte, three first-period goals by Trenton led to a much different outcome Wednesday night. Getting things started for the Trojans was defenseman Cory Dunn, who put his team up 1-0 at 11:39 of the first period with a shot …

Roosevelt has been well received by other teams in the Michigan Interscholastic Hockey League.
Wyandotte Roosevelt hockey players are skating against some unfamiliar territory this season, but everyone involved said it'll lead to an exciting season. In late March, Roosevelt, along with Trenton, left the Michigan Metro Hockey League and joined the Michigan Interscholastic Hockey League, arguably the state’s toughest prep league. Michigan Hockey recently spoke with some other MIHL coaches to gauge their reactions to Wyandotte and Trenton joining their ranks. This is what some of them had to say: “Our entire league is thrilled with the additions of Wyandotte and Trenton. They not only have solid programs but their coaches have similar views to the other MIHL coaches from a discipline and competitive standpoint.” Catholic Central Coach…
