Heikkala commits to NMU

MARQUETTE - Marquette Electricians Midget AAA first year forward Brett Heikkala has made a verbal commitment to play hockey at Northern Michigan University.

The Electricians made the announcement Saturday.

A 5-8, 157-pound sophomore at Marquette Senior High School, , Heikkala had scored nine goals and recorded 14 assists for 23 points through 50 games this season.

He's looking at beginning his college career in either the 2013-14 or 2014-15 hockey season.

"We couldn't be happier for Brett," Electricians head coach Mike Dagenais said in a statement. "He's a great player and has a bright future in the game.

"We all look forward to him playing back here in Marquette for NMU after his junior career."

Due to NCAA regulations, no one from the NMU Athletic Department may comment on this commitment.

Electros’ coach resigning


Dagenais to be married, moving to Minnesota

MARQUETTE - Mike Dagenais wouldn't mind serving as head coach of the Marquette Electricians Midget AAA hockey team for many years to come.
"If I could coach the Electricians forever, I'd do it," Dagenais, 27, said Tuesday. "But I had a choice to make with my personal life."
The Marquette native will be getting married in September. He'll be relocating to Rochester, Minn., to be a registered nurse at the Mayo Clinic after two years at Marquette General Hospital.
Thus, at the end of the season, Dagenais will be resigning as the Electricians' head coach after nearly four years at the helm. He took over from Scott Nevenhoven in November of 2007.
The Electricians' Board of Directors will begin an immediate search for a new coach.
"Mike has been a great asset to our program," Electricians Board Chairman Glenn Andrews said in a statement.
"He came in under very difficult circumstances, righted the ship and demonstrated by the number of players he has moved that Electricians hockey is the place to play for players looking to move to a higher level."
Dagenais will marry Joanna Pollack from Ironwood, who he met at Northern Michigan University where he graduated in 2008. She's currently employed at the Mayo Clinic.
"I have really enjoyed working at this level," Dagenais said. "Although our record could be better (than 16-29-6), we have always played the best competition available.
"We have (also) been very successful in moving players into the junior and college (hockey) ranks.
"My first year, we moved nine guys to juniors. Every year thereafter, we've moved at least three more players. That's what we're here for. Wins are nice, but we're here to develop kids on and off the ice."
The 2002 Marquette Senior High School graduate, who played in the Marquette Junior Hockey Corp. system and spent two years with the Electricians, will guide his club in the coming Michigan Amateur Hockey Association Midget AAA playdowns beginning this weekend. The Electricians will meet the Capital Center Pride in Lansing in a best-of-three series.
Dagenais sees himself coaching hockey sometime in the future.
"I don't think I could ever give up coaching," he said. "I love the teaching aspect of it and the camaraderie. There's nothing I enjoy more than seeing a kid learn something new every day."
