After a shutout win in their lone exhibition matchup on Sunday, UND men's hockey team begins regular season play at home this weekend against Vermont.
Junior Michael Parks, sophomore Drake Caggiula and freshman Luke Johnson netted the goals for UND on Sunday while Coach Hakstol tinkered with different lineups but says this weekend things get serious.
"Well this is for real so there's four points on the line so the whole mindset changes," Hakstol said. "I talked a lot in media day last week that we were fully in an evaluation stage and that's the way we were approaching our entire week last week. While we're still going through the early part of our season and we're going to continue to evaluate guys, that shifts to a whole different level and it's about winning hockey games."
The Catamounts picked up a pair of exhibition wins last weekend, defeating Ottawa 7-0 on Saturday and Acadia 4-1 on Sunday.
