To the Max: Woodbury native helps lift Minnesota State into hockey’s Big Dance
Max Gaede has embraced his role with the Minnesota State University-Mankato and it has paid off with a conference title and second NCAA trip.
Gaede, a junior forward for the Mavericks and Woodbury High School graduate, makes plays on the fourth line that set up his teammate for success. He goes after freeing the puck to set up scoring opportunities. Minnesota State, which is ranked No. 15 nationally, averages 3.2 goals per game.
