|Ryan McKelvie has joined UAA's coaching staff|
McKelvie, who had 9-30--39 in 134 games with the Mavericks from 2002-06, has spent the last two seasons as a member of the coaching staff of the Wenatchee Wild of the North American Hockey League after serving as a graduate assistant coach with Bemidji State the previous two campaigns.
UAA's announcement regarding McKelvie's hiring appears here.
A three-year captain for the Mavericks, the red-headed McKelvie was a hard-working, gritty performer who played both ends of the rink. And for those who have seen most of MSU's games the last couple of decades, it would be hard to disagree that his dust-up with North Dakota defenseman David Hale during the 2002-03 season was one of the best college tussles during that time.
It's great to be a Maverick.
