RUSS HONS: Photo Gallery — University Of North Dakota Vs. University Of Minnesota-Duluth

The University of North Dakota men’s hockey defeated the University of Minnesota-Duluth 4-1 in the third-place game of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference Frozen Faceoff on Saturday night in St. Paul’s Excel Energy Center, but it wasn’t enough to extend the Fighting Hawks’ run to 16 consecutive national tournament berths. Boston University’s victory over Providence in the Hockey East championship was a fatal blow to UND’s NCAA Tournament hopes and ended the season for the Fighting Hawks. In the win over UMD, Austin Poganski, Ludvig Hoff, Joel Jantuinen and Shane Gersich scored for UND, while Mikey Anderson scored the one Bulldog goal. UND goalie Cam Johnson stopped 27 shots as did Hunter Shepard of UMD. The Fighting Hawks finished the season with a 17-13-10 record. (Check out more photos from Russ Hons here.)
