The University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) men’s hockey team is back to .500 on the season after a weekend sweep over Cornell.

Spurred by a dominant performance by first line center Dominic James, who regained some confidence scoring two goals and one assist on Saturday.

“I think things are just falling in place when you work hard, our line was working hard, so things started fine. It was fun to get us back together and start playing our game again that we had last year,” said James.

“Dom was playing great. In the face off circle he was almost 80% tonight. That’s really good, really good momentum going for us. It was important how he stepped up, they were leaders,” added head coach Scott Sandelin.

Up next UMD will hit the road for their first conference match up against Colorado College, Friday and Saturday.
