St. Cloud State begins its men's hockey season Friday night when they host the Bemidji State Beavers at the newly remodeled Herb Brooks National Hockey Center.

The Huskies are coming off of a Frozen Four appearance in 2012-13, and are members of the newly-formed National Collegiate Hockey Conference which begins play this season.

Head coach Bob Motzko joined the Granite City Cafe to wrap up a busy offseason and to  discuss the upcoming season.
