UND Hockey: About 2000 Tickets Remain for this Weekend's Playoff Series against C.C.

Today, I talked to UND Sports Information Director Jayson Hajdu at the Wednesday media day, and there's about 2000 tickets remaining for this weekend's NCHC first round playoff series against the Colorado College Tigers. 

If UND can get 12000 fans for each game, this weekend, they will pass the Minnesota Golden Gophers for top "average" home attendance in NCAA division I hockey. Currently, Minnesota is leading the NCAA in attendance with 231,057 and UND is sitting in second the NCAA in attendance with 218,436. UND will pass Minnesota in total attendance with the second game this weekend.

(Video) UND no goal against Huskies (2/28/2014)

UND forward Colton St. Claire thought he had scored a goal against SCSU Husky goalie Ryan Faragher. Thoughts? Watch at the end of the video, Faragher kicks his pad out, where do you think the puck is?

UND Hockey: Not all Doom and Gloom today

After giving up a two goal last weekend, it seems like things were looking kind of glum. What a difference a week makes. With the win, UND moved up in the Pairwise Rankings.

UND Injury Update

This weekend, when the University of North Dakota (4-6-2, 3-5-0 NCHC) plays St. Lawrence University (7-5-2, 2-2-2 ECAC), in a two-game non-conference match-up, they will be without the services of some key forwards, and could be playing defensemen in their place again this weekend.  The move actually seemed to work last weekend against the BU Terriers. 

First, there is some good news. “(Brendan) O’Donnell should be available, he’s practiced all week,” Hakstol said.

“(Derek) Rodwell, (Mark) MacMillan and (Colton) St. Clair are unavailable (this weekend),” Coach Dave Hakstol said.

UND's injury situation

Last Saturday night, after the game against the UMD Bulldogs, UND head coach Dave Hakstol said that he would get Mark MacMillan some time off to heal what ails him. It was obvious to all of us that MacMillan was hurt. Hakstol said he's suffering from an undisclosed injury and that he had no choice to play him because of numbers. Mark will make the trip to Boston, but not play against the BU Terriers.

UND hockey: Wednesday Links - It's cold and flu season

Again, this guy doesn't have a clue what he's talking about. It's blog I've never read, except last year, when BU played UND. Just for the record, I do think that BU is a great hockey program.

If you want to read a good BU fan blog, read this one from my friend Matt Dresens.  I don't know a western school that doesn't take the bus, to and from hockey games. UMD is five hours away from Grand Forks, ND, down highway two and they will be busing to UND this weekend. Busing is an non-issue with the UND hockey players.

I guess for some reason this particular BU fan has an issue with it. I don't know why he should have an issue with it. Some people should really worry about their own school like Boston University. Think about this, some of these players will go on to play in the minor leagues, they will take buses to their hockey games.

Sounds like the flu is ravaging the UND hockey team right now. Some players aren't in practice right now. We will know who can go as we get closer to game time on Friday night.
