North Dakota opens the regular season when it visits an old WCHA foe, Alaska Anchorage, for a non-conference series on Friday and Saturday at Sullivan Arena.
It marks UND’s meetings with the Seawolves since 2012-13 when the two programs were last conference rivals. UND last visited Anchorage in Oct. 2011.
All UND men’s hockey games, home and away, can be heard on 96.1 FM (The Fox) and on stations across the UND Sports Home of Economy Radio Network, as well as through the iHeart Radio app. Longtime broadcaster Tim Hennessy, in his 39th season as the voice of UND men’s hockey, calls the action while Steve Olson provides color analysis for all home games.
This weekend’s series will not be televised but both games will be streamed live via WCHA.tv.
Receive live updates during all UND hockey games by following @UNDMHockey on Twitter. Fans can also follow the action via live chat at UNDsports.com, featuring Brad Schlossman of the Grand Forks Herald and Jayson Hajdu of UND Athletics.
