GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — The University of North Dakota has its first Western Collegiate Hockey Association scoring champion in four years.

Forward Matt Frattin won the scoring title with 40 points in 28 league games, including seven points against Michigan Tech over the weekend that put him over the top.

The Hobey Baker candidate is UND's first league scoring champion since Ryan Duncan in 2006-07. Duncan that season won the Hobey Baker as the best player in college hockey.

Sophomore Fighting Sioux goalie Aaron Dell won the WCHA goaltending title by posting a league-best 1.97 goals-against average. The last UND goalie to win that crown was Jean-Philippe Lamoureux in 2007-08.

UND hosts Michigan Tech this weekend in the opening round of the WCHA playoffs.
