STAFF BLOG THE AREA VOICES COMMUNITY Why is an NDSU student writing blog about Fighting Sioux hockey?
To be fair NDSU junior Bri Gefroh's blog isn't just about The Fighting Sioux, it's about hockey as a whole. And more accurately her love of the sport. She writes:
"For the Love of Hockey is a female-... Posted on 3/19/13 at 4:04 PM

East Grand Forks native Gage Ausmus, a stay-at-home shutdown defenseman, gave a verbal commitment Thursday to play for UND beginning in the fall. Ausmus, who played for the U.S. Under-18 team this season, will add some grit and physicality to UND’s defensive corps.
UND addressed one of its offseason needs by adding a goaltender from Saskatchewan to replace third-string netminder Tate Maris.
Matt Hrynkiw (pronounced her-in-cue) will come to campus beginning this fall and he brings some strong credentials.
Danny Kristo’s goal is to play in the NHL. Whether that happens next season with the Montreal Canadiens remains to be seen.
But Kristo will receive some valuable experience next month as the former UND standout was named to the U.S. National Men’s team on Thursday.
Soon after Minnesota lost its first-round NCAA tournament game to Yale University, a media member asked coach Don Lucia if this was comparable to “Holy Cross.” Obviously, he hadn’t been paying close attention to college hockey lately. There will never be another “Holy Cross” upset in the NCAA tournament. Those days long gone.
About two hours after UND’s season ended, the team still hadn’t left Van Andel Arena. The seniors couldn’t bring themselves to take off their jerseys for the last time. It was one of near-misses for UND, which finished 22-13-7 overall.
Early in the month, UND finished one goal away from winning the MacNaughton Cup. Saturday afternoon’s near-miss was a lot more painful. In the final eight minutes, UND watched a 1-0 lead turn into a 4-1 loss to Yale University in the NCAA West Regional final in a quiet Van Andel Arena.
Brittany Gefroh, a junior at North Dakota State, often walks through campus wondering if the eyes of passing students are widening or rolling because of what she’s wearing. The 21-year-old journalism and web design student is not taking a religious or political stance with her clothes. She’s just showing pride for her favorite team, which happens to be the University of North Dakota men’s hockey team.
Colorado College defenseman Peter Stoykewych scored on a point shot just 4 minutes 52 seconds into overtime to lift the Tigers to a 4-3 win over three-time defending champion UND in the tournament’s quarterfinal game in Xcel Energy Center.
