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?!?!

Detroit, MI – “Wallcox” is back.

The Gopher goaltender and 2013-2014 B1G player of the year struggled mightily thoughout this season, but Wilcox was his old self Friday afternoon, shutting out the Ohio State Buckeyes (14-19-3) and helping Minnesota advance to the B1G Conference Championship game.

The Gophers (22-12-3) earned two early powerplay chances in the first seven minutes of the game, but didn’t scare the Ohio State defense. In fact, the first Minnesota shot on goal came so...

Senior Class Hangs Fourth Conference Title Banner


Minneapolis, Minn. – The Gophers took the ice Saturday night knowing a win over the Nittany Lions would give them an outright Big Ten Title, and a tie meant they’d share the title with Michigan State. Meanwhile, Don Lucia knew that while a banner would be nice, a win was essential towards his team playing past next weekend.

Minnesota (21-12-3, 12-5-3-0) overcame some early jitters and rolled past Penn State (18-14-4, 10-9-1-0) with four second period goals for 6-2 win and their fourth consecutive conference title in front of 10,178 at Mariucci Arena.

“It was great we won the Big Ten, but we...

Minnesota can Clinch Share of B1G with Win Saturday

Minneapolis, MN – Coach Don Lucia intones the same phrase every year as the season winds into March: “This time of year, you need your big players to play big.”

On a night when Lucia was honored as the program’s all-time winningest coach, the bench boss showed that he still knows what he’s talking about.

Buoyed by goals from each of the members of the first line, the Minnesota Gophers (20-12-3 Overall, 11-5-3-0 B1G) manhandled the Penn State Nittany Lions (18-13-4, 10-8-1-0) to move into a ...
