The 13-4-1 University of Minnesota hockey team returns to WCHA play this weekend against the 8-7-1 Michigan Tech Huskies in a two game series this weekend at Mariucci Arena in Minneapolis. The Huskies are looking to rebound from being swept by Minnesota Duluth while the Gophers swept Minnesota State last weekend.
Minnesota comes into this weekend as the nation's second-ranked team in both the USCHO and USA Today poll. Michigan Tech is not ranked in the top twenty this week after dropping out of the rankings due to being swept. The Gophers lead the WCHA with a 10-2-0 record while the Huskies are tied for sixth place with a 5-6-1 record.
Details for this weekend's series are below. Remember that Saturday's game is not on the regular Fox Sports North channel because of the Minnesota Wild playing Phoenix. It is instead on an alternate Fox Sports North channel.
