Tyson Jost's early signing with the Colorado Avalanche last spring left UND a bit thinner than expected at center this season. The injury to junior Rhett Gardner, who assumed the top-line center role, compounded that issue in a pair of losses last weekend at Minnesota Duluth. Add on the fact that the team's leading scorer, center Nick Jones, has been battling an injury and is questionable for this weekend's series against defending national champion Denver (7:37 p.m. Friday, 7:07 p.m. Saturday), UND coach Brad Berry and his staff may have to get creative with lines.
UND sophomore forward Ludvig Hoff has been named to the Norwegian Olympic team and will participate in the 2018 PyeongChang Games in South Korea next month. The announcement was made official on Wednesday morning. Hoff previously has represented Norway at the World Under-18 Championship and the World Junior Championship. He is the second player from the UND men's program to be named to the PyeongChang Games. Canada previously announced that two-time UND captain Chay Genoway was on their roster.
UND's chances at bringing home the Penrose Cup for the third time in four years diminished significantly over the weekend in a pair of losses at Minnesota Duluth. The more realistic aim is now securing a top-four finish in the National Collegiate Hockey Conference standings and a getting home ice for the first round of the league playoffs for a 16th consecutive season. That won't be easy, either.
It was a new night. UND shifted the lineup for the 26th time in 26 games and broke out the new black jerseys, hoping things would change. But none of it worked. It was the same old story. UND was still unable to kill penalties and it still was unable to beat Minnesota Duluth. The Bulldogs scored three times on the power play—six times on the weekend—as they finished off a two-game sweep with a 5-2 win Saturday night in AmsOil Arena.
Minnesota Duluth 5, UND 2 The story: UND's penalty kill continued reeling, giving up three more power-play goals Saturday against the Bulldogs. UND lost an eighth-straight game to Minnesota Duluth dating back to the 2016 National Collegiate Hockey Conference playoffs. Three stars: 1. Scott Perunovich, Duluth, 2 goals; 2. Joey Anderson, Duluth, 4 assists; 3. Riley Tufte, Duluth, 2 assists.

What's one thing Grand Forks needs to get? A. Chipotle or a Lululemon. Q. Who is the best player you've ever played against? A. Probably have to say Matt Barzal. Q. What's your favorite hockey movie? A. Miracle. Q. Is a hot dog a sandwich? A. No.
Trevor Olson skated onto the ice at AmsOil Arena on Thursday afternoon for an hour-long practice. “I love the ice” he said. “It feels like home, you know?” Well, it is home. Olson grew up in Duluth and starred at Duluth East High School before embarking on a college hockey career at UND.
