UNO hockey: so close to something big

No matter the sport, every team that becomes a championship dynasty has that one heartbreaking loss just before its dreams are realized.


Hockey Regular Season Begins Friday

Last season UNO was picked to finish eighth and ninth in two preseason conference polls, partly because of their youth and inexperience.

The Mavs had never skated in the ultra-competitive WCHA, and 10 of the teams' 25 members were freshmen, new to the college game.  Experience in the WCHA won't be an issue this season.


Mavs split with Denver, take over third in the WCHA

During Saturday's game, Denver's Jason Zucker put his 20th goal of the season past Mav goaltender John Faulkner a minute into the second period resulting in a 4-2 victory for the Pioneers and a split for the weekend. With the split, and a weekend that saw fellow third place Minnesota-Duluth go 0-1-1, UNO took over sole possession of third place in the WCHA.
