Roster revealed

Minnesota State's 2016-17 roster is up, which means it's time to take a look at the numbers. As in the new players' numbers (it doesn't appear any returning players are changing, which is always a good thing for the writers. Here are the Mavericks' eight new players:

6-Parker Tuomie, F, Bremerhaven, Germany (Sioux Falls, USHL)
9-Charlie Gerard, F, Rocky River, Ohio (Madison, USHL)
14-Michael Bigelbach, D, Red Wing, Minn. (Omaha, USHL)
18-Ian Scheid, D, Coon Rapids, Minn. (Sioux Falls, USHL)
20-Marc Michaelis, F, Mannheim, Germany (Green Bay, USHL)
23-Nicholas Rivera, F, Pacific Palisades, Calif. (Omaha, USHL)
24-Edwin Hookenson, D, Lampman, Saskatchewan (Nanaimo, BCHL)
26-Josh French, F, Woodbury, Minn. (Omaha, USHL)

The Mavericks have 26 players on the roster. One player no longer on the roster is defenseman Jaden Schmeisser, who played in 28 games last year as a sophomore and 31 for his career.

The roster includes 15 forwards, 8 defensemen and 3 goalies. It also continues to be a melting pot with players from all over the place, including three countries (United States-20, Canada-4, Germany-2), 12 U.S. states (Minnesota-7, North Dakota-2, California-2, Michigan, Utah, Ohio, South Dakota, Missouri, Wisconsin Alaska, Colorado, Nebraska) and 3 Canadian provinces (Saskatchewan-2, British Columbia, Ontario).

Minnesota State's first exhibition game, by the way, is a mere 88 days away!
