Defending Champion: Woodbury
- White Bear Lake
- Mounds View
Sleeper: Stillwater. The Ponies return almost all of last year's roster. Note that this crew knocked off Roseville in mid-February so they have the potential to beat anybody in this section on any given night. They have strength up front with Andrew Duxbury and Matt Anderson. That will be a difficult matchup for the rest of the section.
Section Winner: Roseville. Heartbreak hotel last year for the Raiders as they lost an overtime thriller to Woodbury last year in the section final. This year's squad may be even deeper. With depth at every position, I think they clear that hurdle this season.
