ST. CLOUD, Minn. — Jim Erickson has experienced a lot of cool events during his career as a play-by-play announcer. A few examples: He's worked in the minor leagues, the Minnesota boys state tournament and with the St. Cloud State men in hockey. He's about to experience something for the first time professionally: he will work at his first Frozen Four on Thursday, April 8. Erickson will work the game for 96.7 FM when the Huskies (19-10-0) plays Minnesota State University-Mankato (22-4-1) at 4 p.m. (ESPN2) in Pittsburgh. Erickson discusses this year's unique state tournament and this season's Huskies with The Rink Live's Mick Hatten. Because of an internet issue, there are two parts to the interview.
