When head coach Dave Hakstol left North Dakota to lead the Philadelphia Flyers, a cleaner version of hockey was introduced by his replacement, Brad Berry. But, in some ways, the Fighting Hawks have returned to their old tricks under Berry with a slash here, a boarding there, an extra shove, and a trip to lead the NCHC in penalties with 248 total minutes spent in the sin bin.

The Fighting Hawks spent their first three nights 23 miles west of the UNO campus in storage pods before relocating to more modern accommodations in Omaha, close to Baxter Arena.
“We are used to no running water and a lack of electricity but poor cell reception and internet access were the biggest challenges.” said senior captain Jordan Kawaguchi.
The Fighting Hawks made the best of a difficult situation by building a corn maze, digging a latrine, and collecting firewood to warm their unheated containers.
