ST. CLOUD, Minn. — With Jess Myers returning from deer hunting camp, The Rink Live video podcast changed locations to the Municipal Athletic Complex, home of the St. Cloud Blizzard junior hockey team that plays in the North American Hockey League.

Hatten discusses St. Cloud State’s tie and overtime win over the weekend at Northern Michigan. Myers talks about the University of Minnesota’s 3-on-3 overtime win and win over the weekend at Michigan.

Then the two reporters are joined by Blizzard head coach and general manager Moe Mantha. Mantha talks about his team’s move to St. Cloud, how things are going for the team, gives an update on Blizzard forward Alex Kupka, who is recovering from a broken C2 vertebrae, and talks about his NHL career. Mantha was teammates with players like Dale Hawerchuk, Dave Christian, Phil Housley, Mario Lemieux, Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier and played for coaches Glen Sather and Herb Brooks.
