WCHA Weekend Roundup: UNO gets week off, but remains in hunt

Weekend results in the WCHA have left UNO in a tie for third place with North Dakota and Denver.  In one of the bigger matchups of the conference schedule, Minnesota hosted North Dakota and went 1-0-1 to take over first place.
The Golden Gophers are joined at the top by St. Cloud State who went 2-0 at home against Denver.  Minnesota and St. Cloud pace the WCHA with 22 points.
Overall, despite not playing, it's hard to think of a better outcome for the Mavs.  The teams most likely standing in UNO's way for the conference crown gained ground, but only marginally.
 


Domo Arigato, Mr. Ro-Massa-o

When Ryan Massa suited up to start in net for UNO's exhibition against the U.S. Under-18 Team, the consequences may not have been clear.   According to NCAA rules, any student-athlete past freshman year surrenders his or her redshirt for participation in an exhibition game.
Thus, Massa's time between the pipes just weeks after rejoining the program means he is now officially using his second year of college eligibility.
