Tom Anastos has served as the commissioner of the CCHA since 1998. Today, he puts down the briefcase and dusts of his skates. The Michigan State Spartans look toward a new season and hope to regain some of the glory of days gone by. We have seen what a coaching change can do for a program as we look to what Western Michigan University accomplished this past season with new head coach Jeff Blashill.
You can read more about Tom Anastos and the Michigan State Spartans Here. The Spartans will have their hands full trying to compete in the high-powered CCHA. With a season behind them that they look to forget, the Spartans have plenty of talent still on the roster. Among the players sit two who share the last name of "Chelios".
Best of luck to our Michigan State Spartans. It is sure to be another great season of Michigan collegiate hockey in 2011-12.
