MSU Mankato gives hockey coach Hastings eight-year contract

Minnesota State Mankato announced an eight-year contract for men's hockey coach Mike Hastings on Monday.

No terms were released. Shane Frederick of the Mankato Free Press reported the contract was worth $290,000 per season.

In three seasons in Mankato, Hastings is 79-36-7, the top record among Division I men's teams during that period. The Mavericks have three consecutive NCAA appearances and won the WCHA regular season and playoff titles in 2015. Hastings won the Penrose Award as the nation's top coach as well.

Six Minnesotans chosen for U18 team in Hlinka Memorial Tournament

Six Minnesotans were named to the U.S. under-18 select team that will compete in the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Hockey Tournament in the Czech Republic and Slovakia in August.

On the 22-player roster are forwards Garrett Wait of Edina, Casey Mittelstadt of Eden Prairie and Riley Tufte of Blaine; defensemen Sam Rossini of Burnsville and Scott Perunovich of Hibbing; and goalie Dayton Rasmussen of Eden Prairie.

Four of the Minnesotans played high school hockey last season. Rossini was with Waterloo of the U.S. Hockey League and Rasmussen, a former Holy Family standout, played junior hockey in Colorado.

Wait, Rossini and Mittelstadt have committed to the Gophers; Perunovich and Tufte to Minnesota Duluth; and Rasmussen to Denver.

The players were chosen after a development camp that ended Thursday in Williamsville, N.Y.
Derek Plante, who last month stepped down after five seasons as an assistant coach at UMD, will be the team’s head coach. The tournament runs Aug. 10-15 in Breclav, Czech Republic, and Piestany, Slovakia.
