GRAND FORKS, N.D. – North Dakota will return to Ralph Engelstad Arena for its regular-season home opener ranked No. 8 in the latest national polls, which were released on Monday afternoon.

UND was ranked eighth in both the USCHO.com and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine polls this week after picking up a win and a tie over the weekend at non-conference for Alaska Anchorage. The Fighting Hawks and Seawolves skated to a 1-1 overtime tie on Friday, followed by UND’s 3-2 overtime win on Saturday.

It marked a slight drop for UND, which had previously been ranked No. 7 in both polls.

Denver, which opens its season this weekend, remained atop both polls and was the unanimous No. 1 in the USA Today rankings.

UND will host unranked St. Lawrence on Friday and Saturday. The puck drops at 7:37 p.m. Central on Friday and 7:07 p.m. on Saturday.
