Bulldog men welcoming top ranked St. Cloud State to AMSOIL Arena
The University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) men’s hockey team picked up a much needed series split against the University of North Dakota last weekend. Falling 4-2 Friday UMD rebounded Saturday winnng 2-1.
Head coach Scott Sandelin talked about the improvement in their defensive coverage during a press conference Wednesday.
The Bulldogs will need to tap into that this weekend as they prepare to host the number one team in the country, St. Cloud State University. Currently the Huskies boast the nation’s second best defense.
“Obviously they’re the top team in the country. Older team, veteran team, playing very well right now, well coached. We’re the underdogs which is great, so got nothing to worry about just go play,” head coach Scott Sandelin said.
It’ll be an extra exciting series for UMD freshman forward Luke Johnson who grew up in St. Cloud.
“My uncle is coming to his first game,” Johnson shared. “It’s obviously good to have, but it’s a big weekend for us. They’re obviously ranked pretty high and we need these points especially now, so that’s kind of just my main focus.”
Puck drop against the Huskies is at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday at AMSOIL Arena.
