One of the biggest hockey rivalries in our area is re-kindled Thursday night as the University of North Dakota and the University of Minnesota face of in Philadelphia, PA, for the semifinals of the Frozen Four.

This is the first time this season the two teams will meet. The teams used to meet every season but no longer do since they broke away from the WCHA. Currently, the University of Minnesota belongs to the Big 10 conference and UND belongs to the NCHC.

Four former championship UND players shared some of their stories when they played and how big this semifinal game is.

"The connection and closeness of the communities.." explains former UND Player Jeff Bredahl. "The history of the programs, and you know the respect for each program, and the dislike, and it is a rivalry unmatched in sports."

The players that joined the Valley Today were Jeff Bredahl (1982-1984), Travis Dunn (1978-1980), Frank Burgraff (1978-1982) and Kevin Spiewak (1999-2003). Each former played during a championship game and against Minnesota.
