The Mavericks recently got a commitment from Park Rapids forward Zach Lehrke. Lehrke, a top-10 Mr. Hockey finalist, finished second in scoring in Minnesota high school hockey with 54 goals and 45 assists for 99 points. The state's leading goal scorer, he finished one point behind Mankato West's Ricky Litchfield in the regular-season scoring race. After the playoffs and the state tournament Lehrke was one point behind Beau Hanowski of Little Falls. It appears likely that Lehrke will play some junior hockey before coming to Mankato. MSU coach Troy Jutting cannot comment on committed or potential recruits until the have signed national letters of intent.
