Despite a slight drop in the national rankings, the University of North Dakota remains a top-eight team in both the USCHO.com and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine polls.
North Dakota, stuck in a 4-game winless skid, is ranked No. 7 in this week’s USCHO poll and No. 8 in the USA Today poll after previously being ranked No. 5 in both. UND is coming off of a loss and a tie last weekend to St. Cloud State.
