Upside potential: #20 North Dakota

A stretch of tough competition provides PWR opportunities for #20 North Dakota. After the Fighting Hawks earned a much needed split against #1 St Cloud St last weekend, they are now at the bottom of a PWR hill going into a pair of games at #6 Denver this weekend. By the current rankings, UND “should” lose those road games at a ranked opponent, so any success will push the Hawks upward, while failure won’t result in much of a fall (though UND can’t afford to squander such an opportunity to climb at this point).

A pair of wins would most likely shoot UND into the #12-#16 range, with a break into the single digits unlikely, but mathematically possible. A split would most likely result in a modest climb to the #16-#19 range. Going into games you’re expected to lose results in very little downside risk, as even getting swept would likely leave the Hawks in the #19-#22 range.

22 wins. That's the target by the time the Frozen Faceoff is completed. If on selection Sunday we have 22 wins, we'll be in. Might even happen with 21, depending upon how the conference tournaments go around the country. Two wins in the first round of the playoffs and maybe one in the Frozen Faceoff means somehow we have to get to 19 wins (six more) over these last 10 regular season games.

Colton Poolman is still in Grand Forks. He didn't even travel to Denver.

That’s not good. Any word why?

"Undisclosed injury"

It’s a huge loss for sure. Hope it isn’t long term

He's had some off weekends recently. Any word that he's been playing hurt?

When players have an illness, like Mono, do they identify it as an injury at first?

Once again the team outplays their opponent only to come out on the short end. DU escapes with a 2-1 win. More and more evident this team will need to win conference tourney to advance to the NCAA tourney

Also looking like a good chance it will be a DU-UND first round. That would be a good series

Lot of hockey before that but it well could be those 2 teams playing each other to advance to the X

How can these players not hit the net... literally anything would be better then missing the net.

No doubt. At least give a chance for a rebound try

this team couldn't hit water falling out of a boat.

I agree. And they are quite capable of doing that, but won't.

I know a guy who used to say "these guys couldn't score with a twenty dollar bill in a two dollar whore house."

He's changed it to a fifty.

To date UND has 872 SOG and 68 goals. Teams are doing 0.922 save ratio against UND.

Opponents are at 612 SOG and 66 goals (for an 0.892 save ratio).


My hope is both of those start obey the central limit theorem and move back toward NCAA-wide averages (meaning UND has its save ratio go up and its opponents' goes down).

A source confirmed to the Herald that UND has bid to host regionals in 2020, 2021 and 2022. The source could not confirm which venues UND put in its bids -- it has recently hosted at both Fargo’s Scheels Arena and Sioux Falls’s Denny Sanford Premier Center -- but Scheels Arena is again in the mix.
