Over the years, he’s had plenty of college hockey teams approach him about playing for their squad, but when the Green and White came in, it was nearly a done deal. “I’ve always loved the Spartans,” Chrcek said. “You’re either a Michigan fan or Michigan State fan in this state, and I always loved the Spartans. It was an easy choice.”

Ice Hockey msuspartans.com —  When John Sturges played at Michigan State from 1972-76, the Spartans scored a ton of goals, won a lot of games and came within a whisker of making the NCAA Hockey Final Four in 1976. Sturges, in fact, had a hand in many of those goals and victories. He left school as MSU’s fourth-leading all-time career scorer, right behind three teammates. And now he sits as the Spartans’ 10th-leading scorer with 77 goals and 132 assists for 209 points.

Ice Hockey freep.com —  Tom Anastos has the support and understanding of the person whose opinion matters most, athletic director Mark Hollis. And with that, any speculation surrounding the future of Michigan State’s hockey coach is put to bed for now. Hollis said Wednesday he has “full confidence” in the man he hired five years ago, with Anastos’ 71-98-20 record mostly a product of circumstance and the complexity of building a hockey roster.

Ice Hockey theonlycolors.com —  Tom Anastos is the coach of MSU hockey for another season, regardless of fan (and blogger) discontent. He has told Hollis this was a five-year plan to start the rebuild and in recent interviews stated he sees it being 9 seasons before MSU was elite. I have to admit Mark Hollis often has an eye for things that us normal people miss. He put hockey in Spartan Stadium and basketball on an aircraft carrier. At this point, I'll fall in line and hope that Hollis is right and there is a renaissance coming under Anastos. I hope he isn't wrong because that could destroy what was a once proud program to something worse than just looking at Penn State in envy.

Ice Hockey theonlycolors.com —  This obviously is pretty dramatic news for the B1G as a whole and not just to the hockey members. The B1G opened the door to sports exclusive members when they allowed Johns Hopkins to join the league and participate only in lacrosse. Still Notre Dame, long believed to be sought after by the conference as a full member, joining the conference is a pretty dramatic turn of events. To MSU, UM and OSU fans it means the return of an old CCHA foe to the league.

Ice Hockey msuspartans.com —  For the last month, Michigan State has been on a mission to be playing its best hockey of the season entering the Big Ten Tournament. Mission accomplished. For sure, the Spartans haven’t been great over the last 12 games. But they’ve been competitive, beat a couple top teams, swept a series, and they’ve found a way to be difficult to play against. Now it is Showtime.

To Spartan fans unaware of the occasion, seeing Phillips skate to the Spartan goal might have been cause for alarm. Phillips, the third string goaltender for MSU, had never recorded a save or a minute of action in five years on the Spartan bench until he stepped onto the ice on senior night in front of a nearly sold out arena.
