Non-Conference Games

Brown (5-6-1) @ #17 Denver (10-6-2)
The Bears are 1-5-0 away from home, which is Providence, R.I., if you’re wondering. The Pioneers are 7-3-0 at home in Magness Arena this season.  I think the Pioneers will catch the Bears hibernating this weekend.  Pioneers Win.


Brown (5-6-1) @ Colorado College (2-12-3)
With the Pioneers waking the sleeping Bears, I say the Tigers will feel their rude awaking anger.  Bears Win.



#19 Nebraska-Omaha (8-7-1) @ New Hampshire (10-10-1)
The Mavericks are 3-2-1 on the road this season and the Wildcats are 3-4-1 at home at the Whittemore Center in Durham.  SPLIT

Exhibition Games

North Dakota vs British Columbia (Fri.) vs Simon Fraser (Sat.)
Last action for NoDak was the sweep of the NMU Wildcats in Grand Forks. It has been two years since NoDak has played in great country of Canada.

UND is riding a 5 game winning streak and, well, this won’t officially effect it, since these are exhibition games.  But here to starting the New Year off right, NoDak wins both games.


US U-18 TEAM @ Minnesota-Duluth
Since it is an exhibition game, it is hard to say who wins… I’m sure UMD will use the game to get everyone back on the ice and playing at game speed.  TIE.


US U-18 TEAM @ #4 St. Cloud St.
Same as above, except SCSU wins.
