  1. And once again the coaches in DIII continue to show their integrity by keeping any HBDS players off the 1st team All-state even though the top goal scorer was on HBDS and two players tied for 3rd place for points overall. Top notch guys. Nothing like politics in hockey. We teach are kids integrity. Too bad the coaches don’t follow the same path. Congratulations to Berlin.
