GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — University of North Dakota hockey forward Rocco Grimaldi is having season-ending knee surgery.

Head coach Dave Hakstol says Grimaldi injured the knee during the preseason. The freshman from Rossmoor, Calif., has appeared in just four of UND's 23 games this season, scoring one goal and adding an assist.

Grimaldi was named the Preseason Rookie of the Year in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. He is a draft pick of the NHL's Florida Panthers, who picked him 33rd overall in the second round of last year's draft.
