Every Mile a Memory

Country music recording artist Dierks Bentley is in Mankato and performs at the Verizon Wireless Center tonight.

Before he performs tonight however, Bentley spent about an hour and half scrimmaging at All Seasons Arena with a few members of the Minnesota State men's and women's hockey teams, along with some local senior amateur players earlier this afternoon.

Bentley, who is from Phoenix but now resides in Nashville, has written or co-written many of his hit songs, including "What Was I Thinkin' and My Last Name."   Bitten by the hockey bug a few years ago when he moved to Nashville, Bentley plays rec league hockey and was profiled in 2009 on the Nashville Predators website.  The story appears here.

MSU presented Bentley and Dan Hochhalter, a White Bear Lake, Minn., native who plays fiddle in Bentley's band, with Maverick hockey sweaters.

Here's what Dierks had to say following the scrimmage:

It's great to be a Maverick!
