DU To Face Northern Michigan This Weekend

From: Upper Michigan Source


After a two-week break over the holidays, the Northern Michigan University hockey Wildcats will be back in action as they face the University of Denver on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 31-Jan. 1 at Magness Arena. DU will be without four of their top forwards this weekend.

Friday’s game will be played at 6 PM MT and will be televised on Fox Sports Network Rocky Mountain. FSN Rocky Mountain can be viewed nationally on DirecTV channel 683 or on Dish Network channel 414. Saturday’s game is scheduled to start at 7 PM MT and will not be televised.

Northern Michigan (9-8-3) enters into the series in a three-way tie for fourth place in the CCHA. DU (12-5-3) is tied for second place in the WCHA with Minnesota-Duluth, behind North Dakota who sits in first, just two points ahead.

DU forwards missing this weekend include, Drew Shore and Jason Zucker playing at the World Junior Tournament and Beau Bennett and Jesse Martin who are injured.

Four free tickets for D.G. "Let go D.U.members". Two 9th row red line and two that they gave away to all season ticket holders. You will have to drive up here to Genesee to get them and I suggest 4 wheel drive just to be sure. The roads are plowed but the last quarter mile to my place might not work to well for rear wheel drive. Respond with your phone number and we can arrange a pickup.

Should be a very sparse crowd tonight. Reference Aluuum's comment about giving away extra tix to season-holders. AS LONG AS the Denver defense and goaltender show up, I don't think having 4 forwards out will hamper DU too much. I'm tired of these Wolverine-Spartan wannabe teams........
