Thompson leaves Mavericks

Minnesota State coach Mike Hastings confirmed this week that senior Blake Thompson has left the team.

Hastings said the decision was Thompson's, and, "Sincerely, we wish him nothing but the best."

Thompson played in the Mavericks' first four games and was on the trip to Bemidji last weekend but was a scratch each game. He had been playing forward, moving to wing just before the regular season began after being a defenseman for his entire career.

The Eden Prairie native played in a career-high 25 games last season, scoring one goal and assisting on seven others. He played in nine games in the second half of his sophomore year after sitting out two semesters following a decision to transfer to MSU from Minnesota.
