Grant Mismash has already gone through this. Last season, he was somewhat surprisingly left off of USA’s World Junior Championship roster. Prior to the World Junior announcement, Mismash was averaging .82 points per game (14 points in 17 games). After learning he was left off the World Junior team, Mismash averaged .38 points per game (eight points in 21 games) for the rest of the season.
This UND hockey season has been filled with highs and lows. The Fighting Hawks have gone from beating Minnesota in Las Vegas and sweeping Wisconsin in Ralph Engelstad Arena to getting swept by Western Michigan at home. While there's been plenty of frustration during the inconsistent first half, Saturday night showed why this team has a lot of promise. UND beat defending national champion Minnesota Duluth 2-1 in AmsOil Arena, despite playing the game without four forwards (and the final two periods without five forwards).
DULUTH, Minn.—Late Friday night, Rhett Gardner warned it wouldn't be pretty. He was right. It wasn't. But a heavily depleted UND squad—one that had every healthy body in the lineup—beat No. 2 Minnesota Duluth 2-1 in AmsOil Arena on Saturday night to get a much-needed series split. Jordan Kawaguchi and Grant Mismash scored back-to-back goals in the opening 4 minutes, 41 seconds of the game and rookie goalie Adam Scheel (28 saves) and the defenders in front of him made it hold up.
DULUTH, Minn. -- Late Friday night, Rhett Gardner warned it wouldn’t be pretty. He was right. It wasn’t. But a heavily depleted UND squad -- one that had every healthy body in the lineup -- beat No. 2 Minnesota Duluth 2-1 in AmsOil Arena on Saturday night to get a much-needed series split.
NORTH DAKOTA 2, MINNESOTA DULUTH 1 The story: UND scored twice in the opening 4:41 of the game and made it hold up, beating No. 2 Minnesota Duluth on the road and ending the Bulldogs' nine-game home unbeaten streak. Three stars: 1. Jordan Kawaguchi, UND, 1 goal, 1 assist; 2. Adam Scheel, UND, 28 saves; 3. Grant Mismash, UND, 1 goal
DULUTH, Minn.—Remember when UND was dominant in AmsOil Arena? Remember UND's blowout win on the building's opening night in 2010? Remember the six wins and four shutouts in the first seven trips to AmsOil? It all seems so long ago. UND lived its latest—and its worst—nightmare in the arena on the banks of Lake Superior on Friday night, losing 5-0 to Minnesota Duluth in front of 6,787 fans.
MINNESOTA DULUTH 5, UND 0 The story: Minnesota Duluth scored four times in the second period to blow open the game and beat UND 5-0. It was the fifth-straight loss for UND in AmsOil Arena. UND is 1-9 in its last 10 games against the Bulldogs. Three stars: 1. Parker Mackay, Duluth, 1 goal, 1 assist; 2. Kobe Roth, Duluth, 2 goals; 3. Mikey Anderson, Duluth, 1 goal, 1 assist.
Grand Forks Red River junior defenseman Tanner Bernhardson was preparing for his game against West Fargo Sheyenne on Thursday afternoon. Bernhardson was ready to play with a heavy heart. His mother, Pam, died Monday after a two-and-a-half year battle with cancer. But while sitting at home Thursday afternoon, he got quite the surprise.
Matt Kiersted didn't hide his feelings about AmsOil Arena. "I'm not a big fan of that place," he said, "going back to high school." Kiersted's nightmares in Minnesota Duluth's home building stem from a pair of section championship game losses. But his teammates may share his thoughts on the place, too. UND hasn't won on the banks of Lake Superior in three years.
