GRAND FORKS, N.D. – The University of North Dakota will enter the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) playoffs ranked among the top 10 in both national polls released on Monday.

UND remained ranked No. 9 in this week’s USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll, but dipped one spot to No. 10 in the latest USCHO.com rankings.

Minnesota remained the nation’s top-ranked team in both polls, with Boston College, Union, St. Cloud State and Wisconsin rounding out the top five in both.

UND will host Colorado College this weekend in the NCHC Quarterfinals on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (if necessary). The winner advances to the NCHC Frozen Faceoff March 21-22 in Minneapolis.
