Monday afternoon head coach Dean Blais announced that the Mavs will lose freshman goaltender Anthony Stolarz to Major Junior Hockey. Stolarz is leaving UNO to play with the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League.
The departure of Stolarz leaves John Faulkner and Dayn Belfour as the only remaining goalies on the Maverick roster.
There's nothing like raining on someone else's parade to start a late-season run. A week after Bemidji St. came to Omaha and ran their record at the CenturyLink Center to 5-0-1 all-time, UNO traveled to Houghton, Mich. and ruined the celebration.
After months, perhaps years of speculation, an announcement was made Tuesday afternoon confirming an outdoor hockey game at TD Ameritrade Park in 2013. On Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013 the Lincoln Stars will play the Omaha Lancers and the University of North Dakota will play UNO at an ice rink that will be constructed on the field of the downtown ballpark.
After a bounce back weekend at Michigan Tech, UNO sits tied for fourth in the WCHA standings. A 3-3 tie then a 4-0 win plus struggles by Colorado College and Denver have the Mavs in fourth place, and within just five points of the top spot.
