(WDAY TV) -- When the UND men's hockey team hits the ice for it's opener tonight in Alaska, it will look far from the team that was ranked number two in the country.

6 players will sit out tonight's game, 5 of them are serving suspensions from that team party back in September.

Which includes captains Andrew MacWilliam, Corban Knight, Carter Rowney, and Danny Kristo. It also leaves the roster without a proven scorer, of the 16 players in the lineup, no one has scored more than 7 career goals.

And leadership, well there will be one senior tonight, that's defenseman Joe Gleason.

Gleason says, "it's going to be interesting, to really get mentally ready for it, especially for the young guys, cause not only is this their first road trip but we are only going to have three lines of forwards I think. That will be a hard adjustment playing a couple really good teams in Alaska."
