GRAND FORKS, N.D. – The University of North Dakota men’s hockey team enters its week off holding strong at No. 2 in both national polls released on Monday afternoon.

UND earned a National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) sweep at Western Michigan last weekend, enabling the Fighting Hawks to nab the No. 2 spot in both polls for the third straight week. UND received nine of 50 first-place votes in the USCHO.com poll and six of 34 in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll.

Top-ranked Quinnipiac stayed atop both polls, with No. 3 St. Cloud State, No. 4 Boston College and No. 5 Michigan rounding out both.

UND will return to action Feb. 12-13 at Denver, which was ranked No. 13 this week.
