The University of Vermont men's hockey team will take a trip to Grand Forks for the first time in the program's history to face UND this weekend.

The two teams have only faced each other twice in the series history with UND winning both contests.

UND, ranked seventh in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll, is coming off a 3-0 exhibition win over the University of Manitoba.

UND is 41-18-7 all-time in season openers, losing just three in its last 17.

Puck drop is set for 7:37 Friday and 7:07 Saturday.
