High School hockey players are a few weeks from captains’ practices at the Lake Delton Ice Arena and early AAA Fall teams are forming for fall tournaments that will start soon as well from the varsity level down to the youngest youth players.
A quick internet search shows some of the ‘Before and After’ programs have updated information on websites, and a few have not.
Among those that have updated their info at the Team Wisconsin fall AAA team rosters.
Included on the team’s U-18 roster are Erik Peterson and Hakon Peterson, twins on the Sauk Prairie Eagles that are heading into their senior seasons. Erik is listed as a forward and Hakon is a defenseman.
