@GOHUSKIESWOOOOO, Mick Hatten discuss the end of the SCSU season, personnel, look ahead to next season

St. Cloud State fan of Twitter fame jumps onto the Huskies Hockey Insider podcast to talk about the 2021-22 season for the team


ST. CLOUD, Minn. — The season began with the St. Cloud State men's hockey team as the No. 1-ranked team in NCAA Division I. It ended with a loss in the first round of the national tournament, but came after a rally to get home ice for the NCHC playoffs. There will be a different look to the Huskies next season with a number of its top players finishing their eligibility or signing pro contracts. SCSU mega fan @GOHUSKIESWOOOOO and The Rink Live's Mick Hatten discuss the team on Friday, April 1.
