University of North Dakota men's hockey nonconference opponents include Wisconsin and Maine


GRAND FORKS, North Dakota — The University of North Dakota men's hockey team next season will face nonconference opponents from the Big 10, Hockey East and the WCHA.

UND competes in the National Collegiate Hockey Conference. It unveiled its 2015-16 nonconference opponents on Tuesday.

They include Wisconsin and Michigan State in the Big 10, Vermont and Maine from Hockey East, and WCHA teams Alabama-Huntsville, Bemidji State and Lake Superior State. The series against longtime rival Wisconsin will be in Grand Forks Nov. 6-7.

UND last year made it to the NCAA Frozen Four for the seventh time in 11 seasons under coach Dave Hakstol, who on Monday was named head coach of the NHL's Philadelphia Flyers. Longtime UND assistant Brad Berry was named the team's new head coach.
