Announcement of The Brooks Center
St. Cloud State University has connected the dots between the current state of hockey in Minnesota, where it has been and the people that helped to put it on the map.
Herb Brooks took it almost entirely upon himself to make sure hockey at SCSU would be known, not only across Minnesota, but nationwide. He led the efforts to create a Division One program in St. Cloud following his year as head coach of the Huskies (1987-1987). He also worked on ensuring the construction of the hockey center, which now bears his name.
On April 18, 2013 prior to a celebration of the hockey teams accomplishments this season, SCSU President Earl H. Potter III along with Dan Brooks (the son of Herb Brooks) and current head coach Bob Motzko made the announcement that the 23-year-old arena would be named the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center.
This is KVSC's Sports Department coverage of that announcement.
