As is the case previously, Minnesota has a group of senior hockey players this year that's hard to compare to any other across the nation. With that being the case, it's nearly to impossible to cover all of the highly-coveted players in the self-proclaimed state of hockey. I recently referenced the 20 players vying for Mr. Hockey this season. But there are plenty more worthy of the praise.

Here are five more players who will definitely cause hockey fans to double take this season:

Jack Smith

School: St. Cloud Cathedral

Position: Forward

PrepHockey rank: No. 1

College commitment: Minnesota-Duluth

With the group coming back for St. Cloud Cathedral this season, the Crusaders enter as heavy favorites in Class 1A to repeat as state champions. That reputation comes thanks in part to returners such as Jack Smith. The No. 1 player in our Class of 2020 rankings dazzled as a junior with a team-best 31 goals. The future Minnesota-Duluth Bulldog will have high expectations as a senior but appears to be someone who can exceed those expectations.

 

Luke Gramer

School: Moorhead

Position: Defense

PrepHockey rank: No. 7

College commitment: Northern Michigan
