GRAND FORKS — Luke Bast had a conversation with family friend Tyson Jost that stuck with him. Jost, during his freshman season at the University of North Dakota, told the defenseman from Alberta: "You want to play your best — not because you're intimidated by the coaches or because you think they'll get mad — but because they care about you so much and their willingness to help you get to the next level is insane. You want to play your best because you know the coaching staff is giving you their best."
WARROAD, Minn. — The picture from the 2005 Warroad High Frosty Festival keeps resurfacing on NBC broadcasts and national newspapers. It's Gigi Marvin and T.J. Oshie, the queen and king of the festival. "That weekend, I won Miss Hockey and his team won state," Marvin said, standing in the lobby of the Gardens on Thursday. "It's crazy how our careers have paralleled." In 2014, Marvin and Oshie both were U.S. Olympians together. In 2018, they both reached the pinnacles of their sport together. Marvin is an Olympic gold medalist.
GRAND FORKS — Cary Eades was starting a 15-hour bus ride home from Youngstown, Ohio.

Oshie and the Washington Capitals lost that night to the Tampa Bay Lightning to fall behind 3-2 in the best-of-seven series. But Oshie made sure to congratulate Eades, who coached him at Warroad High and again at UND, on winning the Clark Cup.
GRAND FORKS—The University of North Dakota hockey team will be making a late roster change for next season. Incoming freshman Carter Huber has decided to stay home for family reasons and won't come to campus anymore, sources have confirmed.

Huber was the captain of the Okotoks Oilers in the Alberta Junior Hockey League last season and was viewed as a potential Fighting Hawks captain in the future. He committed to UND in February. Without Huber, UND will now need to add a forward.

Rizzo, who committed Friday morning, May 25, and announced it Saturday afternoon, chose UND over Denver, Wisconsin and Michigan. He is expected to come to campus in the fall of 2019.
