Pines hockey focused on new division two crown
EAGLE RIVER - For the first time in WIAA boys hockey history, the 83 teams will split into two divisions.

Two state champs will be crowned in 2020 and Northland Pines has its eye on the division two crown. 

The reining GNC champs say they have some unfinished business to attend to.

The Eagles only lost three games last season with a disappointing finish in the sectional semifinals. 

Pines hit the ice last week and say the team is healthy and focused.

The players believe the new division will be an adjustment but maintaining the tradition at home matters most. 

"Our team motto is just washing people's feet. We want to be out in the community, we want to be helping out. We don't want to give the hockey team a bad rep. We want to be well known in the community and our main goal is to bring a banner back," said senior Brady Snedden.

The Eagles will skate 10 seniors this year. 

They hope to motivate the team to make this season the best one yet. 

"Pines hockey means the world to me. My dad got to play here his four years and he was fortunate to win a state championship and I hope to do that this year hopefully carry on the legacy of Pines hockey," said Pines senior Gunnar Schiffmann.

The team says the new dome renovations feel like playing in a new rink with an old-school feel. 

Pines scrimmages Lakeland Thursday at 5.
