Former Wolverine Pettit Honored By MIAC
Jascha Pettit of Wadena has been chosen as the Men's Hockey Player of the Week by the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference.
 
Pettit, a junior at Saint John's, has gotten off to a great start this season, and his success continued in a big way over the weekend as the Johnnies scored a win and tie to take a nonconference series from Concordia-Wisconsin. Pettit led the way with four points, including the game-winning goal in Friday's win and the game-tying assist in Sunday's tie. For his performance, the forward was named the MIAC Men's Hockey Athlete-of-the-Week.

Friday, Pettit had one of his best games of the season, tallying two goals and one assist in the 5-2 SJU win, including the game winner. He also assisted on the Johnnies first goal Sunday to tie the score 1-1 in the eventual 2-2 overtime tie. Pettit has had great scoring stats all year as he is tied for Saint John's team lead with five goals, and ranks second with eight points. Those same totals have him tied for third in the MIAC in goals scored, and tied for sixth in points.

The 1-0-1 performance over the weekend helped Saint John's inch closer to .500 overall with a 3-4-2 record thus far in 2011-12. The Johnnies have a 1-3-0 record in conference play and two points, and they currently locked in a four-way tie for fifth in the MIAC standings. SJU will take a break before its next game, which is Dec. 9 on its home ice in St. Cloud against Milwaukee School of Engineering. The Johnnies also face St. Thomas in a nonconference game on Dec. 10 in Waconia, Minn., to close out the 2011 portion of their schedule.
 
Pettit, a 2007 graduate of Wadena-Deer Creek High School, is the son of Jeff and Mary Pettit.

Shelstad Named To 100 Greatest MN Hockey Players List
The Minnesota Hockey Hub website has named Wadena-Deer Creek High School teacher and former hockey coach, Brad Shelstad, one of the 100 greatest players in the history of Minnesota High School hockey.
 
His overtime shutout of Edina in 1970 title game ranks among state’s greatest performances.
 
Shelstad, who was a goaltender for Minneapolis Southwest High School, made a save in the 1970 state title game against arch-rival Edina that some have called one of the most famous saves in state history.  The save, which others have called the "save of the century," came with just seconds remaining in regulation and sent the game into overtime.  The Indians would win the game a little more than six minutes into overtime, giving Minneapolis Southwest its lone championship in 15 state tournament appearances.
 
Since August, a new hockey player is added each week to the distinguished list on the Hockey Hub website. Each player on the 100 Greatest Players list is ranked according to a scoring system based on high school and post-high school careers. Shelstad is No. 26, joining the likes of Herb Brooks of St. Paul Johnson and Mike Polich of Hibbing.
 
“It’s a pretty select company,” said Shelstad, who in his humble, modest way, downplays the honor as “subjective and fun.”
 
Shelstad admits it’s been enjoyable to see who is on the list.
 
“It’s fun to read about the other players. There’s a lot of guys I remember and know,” he said from his Deer Creek Junior High office, where he teaches special education.
 
Shelstad later played hockey for the University of Minnesota, where he again made history as the Gophers won a NCAA National Championship his senior year in 1974.
 
He then coached high school hockey in New Prague for seven years before making the trip north to Wadena where he started the hockey program in 1988. He coached for 13 years and then decided to hang up his skates and retire. However, he remains connected to hockey by announcing W-DC games for KWAD radio with former Wolverines' hockey player, Jamie Pettit.
 
“Shelstad was a great high school goaltender, no question about that,” said Willard Ikola, former Edina Hornets hockey coach, in the Hockey Hub article. “He was kind of the glue that held that team together.”

Hoemberg Named First Team All-MCAC (UPDATED)
Jared Hoemberg, a graduate of Bertha-Hewitt has been named to the Minnesota College Athletic Conference All-Division First team.
 
Hoemberg, a 5'11" 197-pound defensive back, started all season as a freshman free safety at Central Lakes College in Brainerd.
 
"I would describe Jared as physical, athletic and intense," said Greg Medeck, head football coach at CLC.  "All three qualities helped Jared become the All-Division player that he is. robably his greatest attribute though is his intelligence and football smarts.  He really leads our defensive secondary, making sure guys are communicating well and relaying responsibilities."
 
Jared had four interceptions in nine games this season, tied for third in the MCAC South Division.  His play helped the Raiders lead the division in defense, allowing just 109 points in nine games and an average of 159 yards per game.  The CLC defense also finished the 2011 season ranked #2 in the NJCAA.
 
"It has been a great pleasure to work with Jared this season and I am equally excited to see the role he will play next year," Medeck added.

The Raiders, who have moved up from No. 20 to No. 15 in the NJCAA Div. III rankings since losing their final regular-season game to Ridgewater, will play Iowa Central Community College of Fort Dodge in the Graphic Edge Bowl in the UNI Dome at the University of Northern Iowa at 11:00 a.m. on November 20.  CLC is 7-2.  ICCC is 5-4.
