Son of Minnesota hockey coach Bob Motzko has died of injuries from a car crash

The 20-year-old son of Minnesota hockey coach Bob Motzko has died of injuries from a car crash.

The speeding vehicle Mack Motzko was riding in went off the road in a suburb of Minneapolis late Saturday July 24th.

He died at a hospital after being taken there from the crash in Orono.

One of the other two people in the vehicle, a 24-year-old male in the front passenger seat, died at the scene.

Mack was one of three children of the Gophers coach.

Mack was a senior on the St. Cloud Cathedral team that reached the semifinals of the Minnesota state high school tournament.

He played in 14 games for the Sioux Falls Stampede in the USHL and 25 games for the New Mexico Ice Wolves in the NAHL last season at the junior level.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
