A hat trick for attorney/hockey owner?

Readers of Minnesota Lawyer’s Bar Buzz section might have seen the item last week section about Brian Schoenborn , the Leonard Street & Deinard lawyer who was recognized by Minnesota Hockey recently for his legal work on that organization’s behalf.

Congratulations are in order for Schoenborn this week as well. He co-owns a pair of teams in the United States Hockey League -- a "Tier One" amateur hockey league -- and one of them, the Sioux Falls Stampede, won the championship of the 29-year-old league last weekend. Schoenborn’s other team, the Des Moines Buccaneers (last year’s USHL champion), was eliminated in the semi-final round.

Schoenborn, managing partner of LS&D’s St. Cloud office, has been a longtime presence in the 12-team USHL, serving as the league’s legal counsel and fulltime cheerleader as well as a team owner. Despite his recent triumphs, however, we couldn’t get Schoenborn to guarantee a third straight championship for his hockey empire in 2008.
