ST. PAUL, Minn.—Commissioner Josh Fenton has watched three different National Collegiate Hockey Conference programs win the NCAA national championship in the last three years. But Fenton doesn't plan on sitting back and enjoying his league's success too much. The NCHC commissioner laid out bold plans during Tuesday's annual media day at the Xcel Energy Center for the NCHC to take the lead on researching possible changes to coaching limits and overtimes in college hockey, while hinting that changes may soon be coming to recruiting.

UND’s run of 15-straight NCAA tournament appearances -- the second-longest streak in college hockey history -- ended last spring. But college hockey coaches, administrators and media members are expecting the Fighting Hawks to return to the NCAAs this season.
Lee Goren sat in the UND hockey coaching office after his junior year to discuss the contract offer he received from the Boston Bruins. Head coach Dean Blais had a piece of advice. “You’re not ready to turn pro yet,” Blais told Goren. “You’re not ready to go yet. You have stuff here left to do.” After a lot of thinking, Goren decided that Blais was right. He was going to come back for his senior season.
UND star forward Katie Moller looked across the field Friday afternoon and saw Rachel Lusby standing in net for the Portland Pilots. Moller and Lusby are both seniors from the Portland, Ore., area. They grew up playing Olympic Development Program soccer together and went against each other in club soccer. “I had no idea she was on the team,” Moller said. “So that was a fun surprise.”

PAUL, Minn. -- UND recruit Ryder Donovan averaged more than two points per game last season for Duluth East. He led the Greyhounds to a runner-up finish at the state tournament. He earned some games with the U.S. Under-18 team. And he received an invite to Wednesday’s All-American Prospect Game, which features the best U.S.-born, NHL draft-eligible players.

Last season, National Collegiate Hockey Conference referee Dan Dreger was hit by a puck above his lip, causing significant damage that required several hospital visits. Dreger had four permanent plates installed in his face, two temporary brackets put in his jaw, had his jaw wired shut for two weeks, had eight screws placed in his mouth and 36 stitches.
There are a couple of new twists to UND's fall camp this season. Both of them are welcome to Fighting Hawks coach Brad Berry. The first one is that UND is actually at full strength. When the Fighting Hawks hit the ice in Ralph Engelstad Arena this week, every player on the roster was on the ice. That includes East Grand Forks Senior High graduate Dixon Bowen, a junior forward who had offseason surgery. In recent years, that hasn't been the case.
