UND hockey hits the road this weekend as they travel to Miami of Ohio to begin conference action in the new National Collegiate Hockey Conference.
UND is 1-0-1 overall heading into the opening series. They hosted Vermont last weekend as they looked to shake off some rust and prepare for the new challenges ahead, like facing the top team in the nation.
"I think it should be a great way to kick off the NCHC inaugural season," said head coach Dave Hakstol. "I think it'll be an exciting series all the way through. They're the number one team in the country. We're going in to their building. There will absolutely be an immediate edge to the series."
UND and Miami of Ohio begin this inevitable rivalry Friday at 7:05 pm in Oxford, Ohio.
