Chase Grant feature

With the USHL's Clark Cup championship series about to begin tonight, here's a Fargo Forum feature on Fargo Force captain and future Minnesota State player Chase Grant. The MSU coaching staff is very excited about Grant coming in (among other players) and feel like he's going to be a versatile forward for the Mavericks for the next four seasons.

Grant led the Force with 28 goals this season and been pretty clutch in the USHL playoffs, too. Three of his seven goals have been game-winners. Most impressive was his hat-trick performance in a win last week when two current and future teammates, Corey Leivermann and Matt Leitner, were out of the lineup.

The best-of-five championship series begins tonight for the first of two games in Green Bay. Game 2 will take place on Saturday. The series will move to Fargo on May 7-8. If necessary, Game 5 will take place on May 12 in Green Bay.

I'm not sure of Leivermann's status for this series.
