New Scoreboard & Sound System for Mariucci

New Scoreboard & Sound System for Mariucci

A brand new scoreboard and sound system will be added to both Mariucci and Williams Arena's this summer. On Thursday (5/10), the UofM Board of Regents approved a $8 million dollar loan to pay for the improvements to both arena's.

Mariucci's new HD video screen will be roughly 11.6 feet tall and 14.9 feet wide. The old video board at Mariucci was 6 X 8 in size... In addition to the new scoreboards and sound, Mariucci and Williams will also get ribbon boards to go around the arena. For Mariucci the new ribbon board will be in front of the suites, club room and press box. It should be a spectacular addition... The last thing approved is production studio that will be built at TCF Bank Stadium to produce the video board content for Mariucci, Williams, and TCF Bank Stadium.

For the fans, I think the new sound system will be greatly appreciated. For years people have complained about how bad the sound has been at Mariucci. Hopefully now you'll be able to hear what rink announcer Jamie Verbrugge actually says in his little responses after announcing "1 minute remaining in the period".

Below is a concept of what the scoreboard at Mariucci will look like. Obviously this is not final, but it at least gives you a good idea of what it will look like.... Welcome to the 21st century Mariucci!!! Is it October yet?!?!

He struggled in the opening period giving up three goals on his first four shots, but found his game and Minnesota (18-10-3, 9-3-3-0) rallied off five consecutive goals to top Michigan State (13-14-2, 7-6-2-2) 5-3 at Mariucci Arena in front of 9,651.

Last year Lehr played 49 games and 2927 minutes for Austin in the NAHL, posting a 1.84 GAA and .932 Sv%. However, this season he had only played 33 minutes coming on in relief for Adam Wilcox after the iron man goalie...

State College, PA - For the first time in history, The Minnesota Gophers have lost to the Penn State Nittany Lions.

Now that we have that out of our system, let's move on.

The Gophers (17-10-3 Overall, 8-2-3 B1G) came back late to tie the game, scoring with the extra attacker in the final minute to force overtime, before a questionable penalty call in the extra session gave Penn State (16-10-4. 8-5-1) the chance it was looking for, scoring to clinch the win and secure a home split.

Minnesota got off to a rough start in the first, as an offensive zone penalty gave the Nittany Lions an early ...
