North Dakota’s debut season with the brand new NCHC will include 24 conference games, as well as 10 non-conference matchups with WCHA, Hockey East and ECAC schools.

In all, the 2013-14 regular season schedule features 19 home games and 15 road games. With two home exhibition games also on the schedule, UND fans will have the opportunity to see no fewer than 21 home games next season.
