Minnesota State hockey team honored as part of school’s celebration

I had the opportunity to play goalie for the Minnesota State Mankato, men’s hockey, formerly know at Mankato State University.

And our teams did well. All four years we advanced to the NCAA Division II Final Four. We won the national title once, finished second once and third twice.  Most our players cam from the Twin Cities area.

And so how cool is this? As part of the school’s sesquicentennial celebration, a photo of our national championship team is on the side panel of a city of Mankato bus. Who knew that 37 years after winning the national title, we were be honored on a city bus as part of the school’s 150th anniversary.

Brings back a ton of great memories.
