Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A new season of hockey begins in Grand Forks on Friday as UND will break in as many as 7 true Freshmen for its opener against Vermont.
Dave Hakstol got an early look at his young group on Sunday in their exhibition game, and a couple stood out, including Grand Forks product Luke Johnson and prospect Adam Tambellin. Now the key is to take it over to the real games starting on Friday
Dave Hakstol, Head Coach: “Well this is for real, 4 points on the line so the whole mindset changes talked a lot at media day last week we were fully in an evaluation stage and that's the way we were approaching our week last week, we're still in early part of season, that now shifts to a different level and it’s about winning hockey games.”
Vermont has never played in Grand Forks. 7:30 face off Friday; you can hear it on 970 WDAY.
