The Dan Meyers Golf Classic is being played on Monday at the Mankato Golf Club. The fundraiser for the MSU Blue Line Club had a full lineup that included new WCHA commissioner Bill Robertson (pictured above, right, with Mavericks coach Mike Hastings).

I talked to BillyRob before the outing, and that story will appear in Tuesday's edition of The Free Press. Be sure to check it out.

Other folks of note at the golf tournament included former Minnesota State players and current pros David Backes, Tim Jackman and Travis Morin. Aaron Forsythe, who is now the athletic director (and former hockey coach) at Forest Lake High School, was also there.

I also learned on Monday that former MSU and Gustavus player (and Mankato native) Corey Leivermann plans to try to play professional hockey in Germany. He said he has agreed to a tryout deal with the Hannover Scorpions.

More to come ...
