In this week’s edition of Bulldog Insider, we prepare you for this weekend’s series at Amsoil Arena between UMD and North Dakota with a look at the Bulldogs’ recent success against the Fighting Hawks.
UMD had won six-straight against UND dating back to the 2016 NCHC Frozen Faceoff semifinals. The most recent meeting was in the 2017 NCHC Frozen Faceoff championship, or what’s now become known as the ‘Todd Anderson Show’ with the Bulldogs scoring a 5-on-3 power play goal in the final minute to win it.
You may also remember that Duluth native Trevor Olson tied the game via a 5-on-3 PP goal that night. I profiled the former Duluth East Greyhound and current North Dakota senior forward in today’s News Tribune.
Also in this week’s Bulldog Insider is preview capsules for the UMD men’s series against North Dakota and UMD women’s series at St. Cloud State. The Saturday game of the UMD-SCSU women’s series will be played outdoors as part of Hockey Day Minnesota.
