Video Archive: 1989 Denfeld Hockey

It’s been 25 years since Denfeld played in the 1989 Minnesota State High School Hockey Tournament. Through the miracle of shaky old VHS tapes, we take a look back. Above is the gloriously cheesy video profiling the school, produced for between-period entertainment.

Below are local TV news highlights of Denfeld’s route to the tournament.

Denfeld defeated White Bear Lake 4-1 in the first round of the state tournament. We begin the video showcase with the team introduction.

Below are the White Bear Lake game highlights.

And below is a post-game interview with goalie Jon Michelizzi and forward Cory Fairchild

The Hunters lost a 2-1 heartbreaker to Rochester John Marshall in the semifinal game. Below are the highlights of that heartbreaker.

And here is a second look at the highlights of the John Marshall game via WDIO-TV, including post-game interviews with head coach Bill Vukenich and defenseman Tony Burns.

Denfeld closed out the season with a win over International Falls in the third place game. Lots of scoring in this one.
