Hockey opens on the road at North Dakota

Post by NewEnglander »

UND's 2021-22 schedule
Oct. 8-9 -- NIAGARA

UND's regular-season opener against Niagara will feature a head-to-head matchup between former Moorhead High teammates Ethan Frisch (UND) and Carter Randklev (Niagara). The duo played two seasons at Moorhead together from 2016-18, leading the Spuds to the state championship game in 2017. Randklev also was committed to UND at one time.

I think this might be a carryover from last year’s OOC schedule. Wasn’t Notre Dame on the schedule as well?

FYI, On May 20th of last year there was a post which indicated three of our 2020 OOC opponents would be: opening with North Dakota, Western Michigan in October and Notre Dame around New Years Day. (It appears on page 7 of this site) By carryover I meant they just pushed back their schedule a year. For example the the Notre Dame dates are a few days different than they were in the prior year. I think what was posted as the ‘21 schedule is correct. My fault if I confused any one...Blame Covid!

Thanks Mick. I thought we may have had Denver on the schedule, but that was probably the previous year. It would be nice to get an NYS ECAC team into Dwyer for a weekend. I suspect we can't pay though.

We did have a home and home series with St Lawrence this past year which was cancelled and we did host Clarkson this past year as well. We might owe Clarkson a home game. Time will tell.
