Mavs to play RPI (next season)

We usually have to wait until late spring or early summer to find out Minnesota State's and the WCHA's schedule for next year (why?), but dates usual begin to trickle out through other teams. Rensselaer (RPI) has already put out its season-ticket brochure for the 2011-12 season, and the Engineeers will open their season Oct. 7-8 against Minnesota State in Troy, N.Y. The Mavericks will also host UMass-Lowell at some point, part of the two-year, home-and-home agreement that started with MSU going to Lowell this year.

Minnesota State doesn't have to put out its schedule right now (there are 10 games left in the regular season plus playoffs), but I always thought it would be nice to release it near the end of the season when people still have hockey on their minds, rather than in mid-May, as they did last year, or later.
