The start of North Dakota hockey's 2022 isn't what anyone expected.

Four games in, UND has yet to put a win on the board. The saving grace for the Fighting Hawks could be the end of the season push. Eight of their final 12 games will be inside Ralph Engelstad Arena, where UND has dominated. In its last 40 games at home, North Dakota is 33-7.

"From here on in, it's a sprint. It's a race, and we want to take advantage at home here," said head coach Brad Berry.

UND battles St. Cloud State this weekend, the first time the Huskies have visited Grand Forks since November of 2019.

The North Dakota High School Activities Association took a step forward in fixing a wrong in high school football last week, changing its playoff selection and seeding process for 11A and 11AA. However, there's still more the NDHSAA can do to make high school football better.
