Media day

Thursday was media day for the Minnesota State men's hockey team. Mainly, it was a chance for the Bethany Lutheran College TV crew to get their shots for this season's coverage on Charter cable.

The players donned their new, black road jerseys for the day. Pictured is senior defenseman Cameron Cooper.

I had good chats with team captains Tyler Elbrecht and Mike Dorr. I'll have a feature on Elbrecht as part of The Free Press' season preview package on Tuesday, the day after the Mavericks' home exhibition game against British Columbia.

College hockey's regular season kicks off on Saturday. The Mavericks will have two practices that day and another on Sunday before playing BC on Monday.

Shane will you be attending practices this weekend and let us know what you think?

As a follow up question. Will the team sit some of the seniors/Jr.s to look at the freshman on Monday?

The new road unis look great. Is there a new home one as well? The last jerseys were okay, but the stripes down the sleeves and no team patch up on the shoulder didn't look right.
