Dedicated to coverage of UND Hockey; aka the team formerly known as the Fighting Sioux. More specifically, WCHA, NCHC and college hockey news stories in general. I post stories on the NHL, to include my favorite hockey teams, the Boston Bruins and the Minnesota Wild… I will post anything that happens that’s big in NHL hockey, hits, fights and suspensions. This is also an unapologetic UND hockey site. This site has no official connection to UND hockey, but we have been accused of being toadies.

The NCAA shouldn't be be shocked when the Midwest Regional in Toledo, Ohio is sparsely attended. Wow! I can't believe that the NCAA wants their regional games to be played in half empty arenas in town that aren't probably your first choice as a destination.
Three games for 75 dollars or two days of hockey is a bit steep in my opinion. Official Press Release...
