Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) - The puck drops Friday night on a new era for UND men's hockey, as Dave Hakstol and company visit Miami-Ohio in the first game of the new National Collegiate Hockey Conference.

Adding some spice to the matchup is the fact that the Redhawks are ranked number one in the country.

Dave Hakstol- UND Head Coach: “It's a great way to kick off the NCHC inaugural season. It will be an exciting series all the way through. They're the number one team in the country. We're going into their building, so there will be absolute immediate edge to the series.”

Dillon Simpson- UND Senior Defenseman: “Yeah, it will be a fun challenge for us going into their building and trying to get some wins. They're a really good hockey team and we're going to have to be at our best to get any points out of this series this weekend. Leaving town and going on the road is always fun for us and we're looking forward to it.”
