UNO hockey holds position in top 10 of national rankings

From a new coach to reaching the Frozen Four, check out the history of UNO hockey since 2010.

UNO hockey remained No. 9 in this week's USCHO national rankings.

The Mavericks are coming off a pair of road wins over unranked Alaska Fairbanks. UNO won 5-2 on Friday and 4-2 on Saturday.

The Mavs won those games in different ways. They scored four third-period goals to rally Friday and three first-period goals Saturday.

UNO defeated the Nanooks twice in mid-October at Baxter Arena and completed the series sweep over the weekend.

Four other NCHC teams are ranked in the top 10 — No. 2 Minnesota Duluth, No. 5 St. Cloud State, No. 6 North Dakota and No. 7 Western Michigan.

The 11-3 Mavs are idle this weekend. They return to action Dec. 3 in a two-game home series against Colorado College.

In other NCHC news, UNO’s Cameron Berg was named the league’s Rookie of the Week. The freshman forward had three goals and an assist in the Mavs’ series against Alaska.

Western Michigan’s Ethen Frank, a graduate of Papillion-La Vista, was named the Forward of the Week. He scored four goals in a 6-2 win over St. Cloud State, the first Broncos’ players to accomplish that feat since 2006.
