The 15th ranked St. Cloud State men's hockey team hosts #6 North Dakota Friday night at 7:37 and Saturday night at 7:07.  The Huskies moved up in the USCHO.com Division I poll this week from #18 to #15.  North Dakota dropped from #5 to #6.  The Huskies are 5-3-0 this season and are coming off a split at #3 Denver this past weekend.  North Dakota 3-2-1 overall this season.  St. Cloud State head coach Bob Motzko talked to Jay Caldwell and Lee Voss on the Granite City Cafe this week on AM 1390-the Fan.

The Huskies will play this weekend without one of their top players, Ben Hanowski.  Hanowski suffered an apparent head injury against Minnesota State-Mankato on October 27 and hasn't played since.  He'd like to return for the Duluth series but head coach Bob Motzko says he'd be happy to have Hanowski back by Christmas.  The St. Cloud State men's hockey team has a break after this weekend.  St. Cloud State will play at Minnesota-Duluth November 23-24.
