Alerting top hockey players!

By Tim Kolehmainen, Breakdown Sports USA, 05/05/17, 11:15PM CDT


Register online for our 6th annual photo shoots

Were you invited?  Invitations are currently being to players through their high school head coaches.  If you're one of the select few, The Breakdown would like to congratulate you on being selected to be featured among the best hockey players in the state in the annual Breakdown hockey guidebook. Only the best players at each grade level from across the state were selected to attend the photo shoots, which are scheduled for several dates and locations across the state.

All players invited to the photo shoot have the opportunity to get a great deal on our 2017-18 guidebook and calendar. This deal is available only to players invited to the photo shoots! It’s just $49.99 for the combination and $44.99 for each additional book.  

How were you selected? The Breakdown has a panel that consists of members all across Minnesota. At the conclusion of the season, our staff submits its picks of players worthy to be considered among the best in the state and from that list, a group of finalists is selected for this honor.

How does it work?  In order to accommodate a large group of top players (and to avoid unnecessary wait times), we have spread the photo shoot out over a several-hour period.  Please feel free to come at any point during the shoot, but be advised that the first hour is usually the busiest.

•   Please bring your jersey, as well as your gloves and stick for a posed shot (no on-ice photos will be taken)
•   professional studio photographers are present
•   individual, group and combination photos will be taken
•  individual information, including a biography and Q and A form, will be used in the Breakdown book
•   once you arrive, the photo shoot should be completed within 30 minutes

Can't make it to any of the dates? You can still be in the book and receive the same special deal! Just fill out the registration form without selecting a date, complete the Q and A form and email a photo to
