North Dakota men's hockey team ranked 2nd in both national polls; team opens season Sunday


GRAND FORKS, North Dakota — The University of North Dakota men's hockey team is ranked second in the first national polls of the season.

UND trails only Minnesota in both the poll and the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine polls.

UND last season advanced to the NCAA Frozen Four but lost to Minnesota in the national semifinals. The team opens this season on Sunday with an exhibition home game against Manitoba.

Providence is ranked third and Boston College fourth in both polls released this week.
