Former Maverick forward Travis Morin enjoyed an impressive year in the American Hockey League in 2009-10 with the Texas Stars. So much so, in fact, that the Brooklyn Park, Minn., native has earned a two-way contract from the parent Dallas Stars. Morin was featured recently on the Stars' website and that article is available here.
Former Maverick defenseman Chad Brownlee, who has transitioned to a career in the country music industry, is set to release his first cd at the end of August. Brownlee, a Kelowna, B.C., native who compiled 4-7-11 and 201 PIMs in 135 games in four years with Minnesota State from 2003-07, had his first single, The Best That I Can (Superhero), reach as high as #19 on the Canadian country music charts this past winter. You can pre-order a copy of Chad's new cd by going to his website located here.
Only 30 days until Minnesota State hosts Northern Michigan in nonconference football action at Blakeslee Stadium Sept. 2.
It's great to be a Maverick!
