Six months after its formation, a commissioner for the National Collegiate Hockey Conference has been named. Jim Scherr, the former Chief Executive Officer of the United States Olympic Committee and former executive director of USA wrestling, was introduced as The National's first commissioner on Wednesday morning.
After failing to notch a victory in six chances against Bemidji St. last season, the UNO hockey team went to northern Minn. last weekend with an understanding of the challenge before them. Frustration Friday night gave way to a blowout Saturday night, and the Mavs snapped their seven-game winless streak against the Beavers.
As the competition has discovered during the course of UNO's first eight games, it can be difficult to know which player or line to stop in order to be successful against the Mavs.
