Adam Scheel was vomiting late Friday night and Saturday morning. When the UND freshman goalie arrived in Ralph Engelstad Arena at 9 a.m. for morning skate, the coaching staff sent him home to get rest and fluids. "It was concerning," said UND coach Brad Berry, who was already without injured goalie Peter Thome. "We sent him home right away. He got some fluids. I don't think he ate a whole lot, but he got some fluids in him. He came back to the rink with a smile on his face, ready to go. I'm proud of him for digging in and finding a way to get it done."
UND 3, Colorado College 2, OT The story: For the second-straight night, UND beat Colorado College in overtime. Jordan Kawaguchi scored the game-winning goal 50 seconds into overtime. He also added an assist. The win marked UND's first NCHC sweep of the season. Three stars: 1. Jordan Kawaguchi, UND, game-winning goal, assist; 2. Nick Jones, UND, two assists; 3. Adam Scheel, UND, 22 saves.
UND defenseman Gabe Bast has been suspended one game by the National Collegiate Hockey Conference for an illegal hit to the head on Colorado College forward Alex Berardinelli on Friday night. Bast will be forced to sit out tonight’s series finale against the Tigers at 7:07 p.m. in Ralph Engelstad Arena and will return for next weekend’s series at Omaha.
For a moment in the third period, UND had to wonder: What did it do to deserve this fate? It was losing another game it had dominated. It was 15 minutes away from its eighth loss this season when outshooting an opponent by double digits. No other National Collegiate Hockey Conference team has three such losses. And this one would have had the bitter, lasting image attached to it of UND transfer Chris Wilkie popping his Colorado College jersey to fans in the front row at Ralph Engelstad Arena after scoring the go-ahead goal for the Tigers.
UND 4, Colorado College 3, OT The story: Trailing by a goal with less than six minutes to go in the third period, UND's Jordan Kawaguchi scored the game-tying goal with 5:46 to go in regulation and Ludvig Hoff re-directed a Jacob Bernard-Docker point shot with 45 seconds left in overtime to give UND a much-needed NCHC victory. Nick Jones and Jordan Kawaguchi each had a goal and an assist in the game for UND.
UND’s first NCAA national championship team didn’t waste any time trading old stories Friday as they gathered for a 60-year anniversary of the 1958-59 season. They laughed at the thought of how they used to have to share showers with their opponents in the Winter Sports Building.
UND is coming off of a strange weekend, getting swept by Canisius in Buffalo, N.Y. Prior to that, UND had never lost to a team currently in Atlantic Hockey (26-0). But it is not uncommon these days for a traditional power to be having struggles in college hockey. Boston College, Minnesota, Boston University, Michigan, Wisconsin and Michigan State are all under .500 right now. Boston College is winless in 25 consecutive regular-season nonconference games going back to 2016.

Chris Wilkie walked back into Ralph Engelstad Arena on Wednesday afternoon. Instead of parking in the north lot, he rode down the ramp on a bus. Instead of walking to the home room, he set up shop across the hall. After spending two years at UND—and being a part of the 2016 NCAA national championship team—Wilkie is back in Grand Forks as a member of the opposing team.
The UND hockey team returned from Buffalo, N.Y., early Sunday morning, facing three big things: a high level of frustration after only scoring twice on 162 shot attempts, a big hole in the Pairwise Rankings to dig out of, and a mountain of criticism from the fans -- both rational and irrational. They went to work in practice this week looking to address No. 1.
