Forgive CC senior defenseman Gabe Guentzel if he was already a little tired before the 160-mile ( it sure seems longer) bus trip from Minneapolis to Duluth after the Tigers missed their flight to Duluth because of Thursday morning’s snowstorm.

Thunder Bay, Ontario is the hometown for the top senior centers for both Minnesota Duluth’s men’s and women’s hockey teams. Good article by Kevin Pates and a smart way to feature two seniors headed into a big weekend at AMSOIL Arena.
North Dakota has struggled at Denver’s Magness Arena. DU’s top freshman defenseman plans to stick with the Pioneers for a full four years. Here’s a preview of the series and the latest Through These Doors video.
