Minnesota State locked up Mike Hastings for the next eight years, announcing a new contract for the Mavericks coach on Monday.

It was all about the future of the program during the announcement, which coincided with an update on the Verizon Wireless Center hockey expansion, which includes new locker rooms, offices, training facilities and other amenities for men's and women's hockey, as well as the unveiling of a potential center-ice scoreboard design for the arena.
