First off, health and happiness to all this Thanksgiving.

Here is an update from North Dakota and Minnesota, including future scheduling possibilities with Boston College. Here is this week’s WCHA column with my items on the NHL Draft, the spotlight series, players of the week, and DU coach George Gwozdecky on the lookout for overconfidence from his team.

The Gazette previews this weekend for No. 14 Colorado College. No. 3 New Hampshire’s excellent defense is the subject of this week’s Hockey East column. The Wildcats play CC on Friday and No. 2 Denver on Saturday.
