UND to play in British Columbia on Jan. 2-3; Canucks home on Jan. 1. Jets home on Dec. 31. Sounds like a good trip.

The University of North Dakota is scheduled to play two exhibition games against the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds on January 2-3, 2014 and of course some fans that aren't happy with the decision, but I think it's a great idea. In fact, the idea is a stroke of genius. Think about the exposure that this exhibition series will give the UND hockey team. This series could be a great recruiting event for the UND hockey team. It's also a great way to expose the Western Canadians to the NCHC. I know in the past, there has been some talk about letting the Canadian teams join the NCAA hockey and there is a team, Simon Fraser Clan of Burnaby, B.C. that already plays in Division II sports. I look at this as an opportunity.
