  • Series Numbers: North Dakota leads the all-time series 11-7-1, including a 5-0-1 mark in Grand Forks. In the last ten meetings, BU holds the edge with a 6-3-1 record, with two of UND's three wins over that span coming in the NCAA tournament, including the 1997 Frozen Four championship game victory. From the 1984-85 season through 1989-90, UND & BU played at least once every season (WCHA-HEA matchups counted in the conference standings from 84-85 to 88-89). UND held a 7-3 advantage during that stretch. This weekend's matchup will be the first time these two storied programs have met since BU defeated North Dakota 5-1 in the 2008 IceBreaker Tournament.
  • Senior Danny Kristo made his regular season debut last weekend with a four assist series against Alaska-Anchorage, and he is the lone active member of the UND Century Club with 113 career points. Corban Knight remains on the Century Club doorstep with 99 career points after scoring two goals last weekend. Carter Rowney, by the way, is third on the active point list with 48.
  • Michael Parks is not expected to play again this weekend due to the lower body injury he suffered in the exhibition game against Manitoba. The time frame for his return to the lineup is still undetermined.
  • Nine members of this season's BU squad are NHL draft picks, while 14 North Dakota players have heard their names called by NHL brass.
