Teddy should be able to jump right in and make an impact; MSU`s top two point scorers last season were freshmen in Matt Leitner and JP Lafontaine (nephew of Pat). The glaring issue the Mavs have had in the three seasons I´ve been covering them is the lack of a potent offense, which is something I think Mike Hastings will solve given his USHL successes.

They´ve averaged 105 goals and 2.74 goals per games the past three seasons, which`ll get you in the teens in total offense in the ¨old¨ WCHA (Which there`s one more season of). As for this season, obviously it´s next to impossible to have Teddy duplicate his Shattuck numbers, but I`d say if he gets between 15-20 points on the year its a successful season. As for where he lines up? Of course, hard to tell with the new coach, but there is a chance he could be on the first line when they skate for the season opener at Alabama-Huntsville October 12th.
