The kudos just keep coming for the MSU Maverick Men's Hockey team. Coach Mike Hastings, has been named this season's Coach of the Year by College Hockey News. Hastings, in his first year here, led the Mavs back to the NCAA tournament for the first time in 10 years. Hastings engineered a 12-win turnaround from a season ago. Hastings has already been named the WCHA Coach of the Year. He was named head coach at Minnesota State last April, coming from Nebraska-Omaha, where he was an assistant. Don't forget, the Mavs take on Miami of Ohio in their first tournament matchup on Saturday afternoon, puck drops at 4.
