Opportunity keeps knocking for McInnis

Mavericks captain set to sign; Palmquist will return


McInnis was named third-team All-WCHA this season, leading the Mavericks to a second-place finish in the regular-season and the Broadmoor Trophy championship in the WCHA tournament. The Mavericks’ season ended in the first round of the NCAA tournament at Worcester, about an hour from where McInnis grew up.

McInnis, a history major, said he’s scheduled to graduate this summer. He said his current professors have been supportive and helpful as he pursues this professional opportunity. Lake Erie will have six games remaining in the regular season after McInnis arrives, so he’ll be able to return to school April 20.

“There will be some school to try to keep up with,” he said.

In other Minnesota State news, junior defenseman Zach Palmquist confirmed that he will be returning for his senior season.

Palmquist, a first-team All-WCHA pick who has gone to NHL development camps the past two summers, was seventh on the team with 23 points this season. The free agent ranks eighth on MSU’s Division I-era list of scoring by defensemen with 67 points in 120 games.
