Minnesota vs. North Dakota Saturday Night Line Combinations

For the third straight game, the Minnesota Golden Gophers are icing the same squad for Saturday’s game. That includes freshman Seth Ambroz remains in the lineup after being ejected for a checking from behind penalty Friday night.

The only change for either team is North Dakota’s Rocco Grimaldi being in for Taylor Dickin. The WCHA Preseason Freshman of the Year is returning from a lower body injury which has limited him to three games this season for the Fighting Sioux.
