Poolman set to return to Fighting Hawks lineup

By  | 

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (Valley News Live) -- Senior Captain Colton Poolman is set to return to the University of North Dakota Hockey team this weekend in Duluth after missing the last two games.

Poolman did not make the trip to Oxford, Ohio this past weekend. The Fighting Hawks extended their road unbeaten streak to eight games after earning a shootout win Friday before winning Saturday.

"It was a wise choice leaving him at home, getting him rested and recovered to be 100 percent healthy for the series in Duluth this weekend," UND Head Coach Brad Berry said Monday.

In 20 games this season Poolman has 11 points (2 goals, 9 assists) and is second on the team with 20 blocked shots.

UND starts the weekend series against Minnesota-Duluth Friday at 7:37 p.m. on CBS Sports Network.
