With the 2020-21 season still months out, it’s time to take a look at teams from all over the State of Hockey and examine what happened this past season and what’s ahead. The next team we’re breaking down is Crookston.

How last season went

Crookston had a year they will try to forget. The Pirates lost their first 13 games to start the season, being outscored 61-19 during that stretch. The Mariucci conference was not kind to them, as teams like Warroad and Moorhead made quick work against the Pirates in each meeting. Crookston finished the regular season with a record of 4-21-0, however entering playoffs they did manage to win 3 of their last 5 games.

The Pirates had a nice send-off for the seniors as they defeated Park Rapids 7-1 in the play-in game, a team that counted for two of their wins in the regular season as well. However, they quickly met their fate in the first round of the Section 8A playoffs against East Grand Forks, losing 10-1 to end their season.

Who’s gone and who’s back

Good news for Crookston is they’re a very young team
