Minnesota State wast­ed little time promoting the Mike Hastings era.

On Sunday, the univer­sity unveiled its home hockey schedule for the 2012-13 season, and sea­son- ticket packages and Blue Line Club member­ships currently are for sale.

A flyer promoting tick­et sales was distributed at Monday morning’s press conference intro­ducing Hastings as the Mavericks’ new coach.

“It’s safe to say that the interest is definitely there, compared to a nor­mal April,” said Tim Marshall, MSU’s associ­ate athletic director for fiscal affairs and opera­tions. “We’re definitely getting calls from new people and people renew­ing.”

Hastings’ first game behind the bench at the Verizon Wireless Center will be an exhibition against the University of Lethbridge on Oct. 7.

His first regular-season home series will be Oct.19-20 against Rensselaer.

Minnesota State also has home series against Denver (Nov. 9-10), Bemidji State (Nov. 30-Dec. 1), Alaska Anchorage (Dec. 7-8), Providence (Jan. 4-5), Wisconsin (Jan. 11-12), Michigan Tech (Feb. 15-16) and North Dakota (March 8-9).

The Mavericks will play two home-and-home series against Minnesota, with the Mankato games taking place Nov. 3 and Jan. 26.

Minnesota State will open the regular season Oct. 12-13 at Alabama Huntsville. The Mavericks will also play road series at St. Cloud State, Wisconsin, Nebraska Omaha, Alaska Anchorage, Minnesota Duluth and Colorado College, as well as a late-December tournament at Connecticut.
