#2 UMD returns to the ice after Thanksgiving break

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

DULUTH,MN – After taking last week off, the UMD men’s hockey team is back on the ice as they prepare for long time rival North Dakota. In their most recent outing, the Bulldogs came back and scored four unanswered goals to defeat Denver 4-3 in overtime. The team says after some time off, it’s both a blessing and a curse as they prepare for the Hawks.

“There are parts of it that are nice, you get a little break, so it is nice to get rejuvenated, refocused, at the same time, you kinda gotta get back into the pace of the game. You might lose that after having a weekend off, but we feel like we’ve had a pretty good two weeks here coming off of our last series so, we are looking forward to it.”

“We want to play our best hockey, we know coach has some history there so, it is always important to get off on the right foot against these guys and there definitely some good history from my four years here, let alone the rest of it between the Bulldogs and the fighting Hawks. It should be fun.” said senior forward/team captain Parker MacKay.

#2 UMD (9-2-1) will face #15 North Dakota (7-5-1) this weekend. Friday’s game will air on Fox Sports North +. Saturday’s game will air on the MY9 Sports Network. Puck drops at 7:07 p.m. on both nights.
