New commitments

According to Chris Heisenberg's recruiting site, Minnesota State got two new commitments recently: goaltender Phil Cook from Fairbanks of the North American Hockey League and forward Matt Leitner of Fargo of the United States Hockey League.

Cook will round out the Mavericks' stable of goaltenders, which will include redshirt freshman Austin Lee and incoming recruit Kevin Murdock.

Leitner's addition will be interesting. Unless he's coming to Mankato later, he is one of four forwards coming in. Currently, MSU will lose just one forward -- senior Mick Berge -- to graduation, although it doesn't seem likely that Brett Peterson, who never played and had back surgery over the holidays, will be on next season's roster. Does this mean others aren't coming back?

Leitner looks to be a pretty good addition. He's currently leading the Fargo Force in scoring and there are a couple of big recruits on that team.
