Minnesota State University-Mankato Mavericks




2012-2013 Record: 24-14-3


Talking Point:

Mankato was a huge surprise under first year coach Mike Hastings in the WCHA last year earning an NCAA Tournament berth after years of mid pack finishes. Mankato also features one of the best goalies in the league in New York Islanders Draft Pick Stephon Williams who put up spectacular numbers as a Freshman. If Williams and the rest of the Mavericks can put up similar numbers this season they should be the early favorites in the new look WCHA.


Coach: Mike Hastings (2nd Season, 24-14-3)


Top Returning Scorers:

Matt Leitner: 41 Games, 17 Goals, 30 Assists, 47 Points (Even)

Jean-Paul Lafontaine: 41 Games, 9 Goals, 26 Assists, 35 Points (-3)

Zach Lehrke: 41 Games 8 Goals, 17 Assists, 25 Points (Even)


Between the Pipes:

Stephon Williams put up monster numbers as a Freshman, in his 35 games played he posted a 2.00 GAA and a .924 SV%. Williams should rightfully see most of the time in net this season with Freshman Cole Huggins likely seeing some time in relief.
