Johnny Simonson grew up in Grand Forks following the UND men’s hockey program and all of its feats. Nobody needs to tell him that the program has reached the NCAA tournament 15 years in a row -- the second-longest stretch in college hockey history. Nobody needs to tell him that UND has been at home for the first round of the playoffs every season since he was eight years old. Simonson already knows all about that.
GRAND FORKS -- In his last game at the 2018 Winter Olympics, University of North Dakota sophomore Ludvig Hoff played against former NHL superstars Pavel Datsyuk and Ilya Kovalchuk of Russia. Datsyuk even came over and talked to Hoff and another Norwegian player after the quarterfinal game.
Last summer, the UND women's hockey locker room was empty, except for one stall in the corner. Goalie Kristen Campbell, who was set to transfer to the University of Wisconsin after UND's program was cut, was the last remaining member of the team in Grand Forks. Campbell spent countless hours in the summer in Ralph Engelstad Arena with twin sisters Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson and Monique Lamoureux-Morando working on their skills.
Grand Forks natives Monique and Jocelyne Lamoureux and Warroad's Gigi Marvin appeared on The Ellen Show on Tuesday afternoon. Ellen honored the Lamoureux twins, Marvin and the U.S. Women's Olympic hockey team for winning gold by displaying their jersey on the wall of her set. The Americans won gold by defeating Canada 3-2 in a shootout in the gold-medal game in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Monique scored the game-tying goal late in the third period and Jocelyne scored the game-winning goal in a shootout.
Olympic gold medalists Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson and Monique Lamoureux-Morando of Grand Forks and Gigi Marvin of Warroad are starting their Victory Tour around the United States today. It will include appearances on The Ellen Show with Ellen DeGeneres and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. They will be taping an episode with Ellen this afternoon in Los Angeles that will air tomorrow (Feb. 27). Their appearance on The Tonight Show in New York City is scheduled for March 5th.
OXFORD, Ohio—It never stopped raining the entire time UND was in Ohio on its last road trip of the regular season. Perhaps it was a omen or a metaphor for the Fighting Hawks, whose chances of getting home ice for the first round of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference playoffs and a berth in the NCAA tournament for a 16th straight year are now as murky as the puddles that gathered across Miami University's campus.
UND 2, Miami 2, tie The story: UND rallied from down two goals in the third period on goals by Hayden Shaw and Nick Jones to tie Miami. The RedHawks grabbed the extra point in the standings with a 3-on-3 goal by Kiefer Sherwood. With the tie, UND matched the school record for most ties in a season with nine.
Former two-year UND captain Chay Genoway is bringing home an Olympic medal from Pyeongchang, South Korea. Genoway won a bronze early Saturday morning, helping Canada defeat the Czech Republic 6-4 in the bronze-medal game at the 2018 Winter Olympics. The Canadians led 3-1 after the first period and blew the game open in the third with three more goals.
OXFORD, Ohio—No lead is safe with the UND men's hockey team right now. Not even a three-goal cushion against the last-place National Collegiate Hockey Conference team that hadn't scored in four games and 240 minutes of play. UND turned a 3-0 lead into a 4-3 overtime loss to Miami on Friday night in Goggin Ice Arena, the worst of all the blown leads in the last month. Ben Lown finished it 59 seconds into overtime, when he was gifted a breakaway due to a poor line change and snapped a shot past UND goalie Cam Johnson's right leg.
