GRAND FORKS, N.D. - The University of North Dakota will return to Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) play ranked sixth in both the USCHO.com and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine men's hockey polls released today.

North Dakota maintained its previous ranking in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll, but fell one spot from No. 5 in the USCHO.com poll. UND is coming off of a split against then-12th-ranked Boston University last weekend, winning 4-2 on Friday and losing 4-2 on Saturday.

UND will now resume WCHA play this weekend with a road trip to St. Cloud State. The Huskies are ranked No. 15 in the USCHO poll, but are unranked in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll.
