The UND men’s hockey team opens its season with a Saturday night home exhibition against Manitoba.
The Fighting Hawks are picked to finish third in the NCHC.
Eighteen letterwinners return from last season, when UND finished fourth in its conference.
Senior goalie Cam Johnson says, it’s a different feeling this year, after beginning last season as the defending national champs.
"We don't have that target on our back," Johnson said. "If anything, we've got a little chip on our shoulder that all these people don't believe in us."
Game time is 7:07 PM at Ralph Engelstad Arena.
UND is ranked 7th in the pre-season polls.
The regular season opens October 6th and 7th at Anchorage.
