The creator of the videos has a surprising announcement in this year's edition.
Former Edina High School and University of Minnesota hockey stars Bruce Carlson and Skip Thomas have tirelessly collected and compiled programs, scrapbooks, feature articles, rosters, trophies, sticks, gloves, jerseys and a 20-foot four-pronged timeline of girls and boys hockey for a new, comprehensive exhibition of 65 years of Edina hockey history.
Now an established hockey power with 11 state high school boys’ hockey championships, Edina’s hockey program was in its infancy in the 1950s.
Edina had its first taste of success in 1955, when it entered the State High School Tournament for the first time (only to lose). But that was enough to draw about 50 boys to the newly formed Edina youth hockey association the following year.
