When UND and Ralph Engelstad Arena decided to upgrade the referees' locker room this summer, Pat Swanson immediately had an idea. In addition to adding amenities, Swanson wanted to put a dedication to the late Oliver 'Butch' Mousseau—the longtime popular referee in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association and National Collegiate Hockey Conference—in the room. "We wanted to spice up the ref room," Swanson said. "What better way to do that than have a tribute to him? The league just retired his number and we thought it would be great to have something up for him."
Cam Johnson was finally able to sit back and relax. For the first time this season, the UND hockey team gave its goaltender a little room for error. UND exploded for three goals in the first period and six goals for the game—matching its total from the first three games of the season combined—in a 6-1 rout of St. Lawrence on Saturday in Ralph Engelstad Arena. Six different players scored the goals.
UND 6, St. Lawrence 1 The story: UND exploded for three goals in the first period and six in the game -- the same number UND had in its first three games combined -- as it finished off a sweep of St. Lawrence.
At the beginning of the season, Fargo South boys tennis coach Vic Youngs asked his players to fill out a survey with random questions on it. Davis Lawley wrote on his survey a goal that seemed hilariously far-fetched: He wanted to get through the season without losing a game in singles. Not a match. Not a set. A game. "That didn't happen," Lawley said. No, but he came amazingly close.
As Fargo South's Davis Lawley ripped through the regular season—going undefeated in singles and not playing a match closer than 6-0, 6-1—the rest of the East Region took notice. Nobody was going to compete with the 2015 North Dakota state boys singles champion and not many wanted to try. That's what led to an unusual number of top players opting to compete in doubles in the individual tournament rather than singles.
Collin Adams insists he wasn't picking a spot. He said he was just looking to one-time a shot high on net. Forgive his teammates if they don't believe him. Adams finished off a beautiful tic-tac-toe passing play by picking the corner of the net with just 3 minutes, 49 seconds to go, lifting UND to a 2-1 win over St. Lawrence on Friday night in Ralph Engelstad Arena. It was the latest show of offense from the UND rookie from Brighton, Mich.

Q. What's your favorite college hockey road venue in the NCHC? A. I'd have to say St. Cloud, just because whenever we play there, it's about 50 percent green and 50 percent red and it's always rocking. Q. What is the one thing Grand Forks needs to get? A. I think we need a minor league baseball team. Q. Who is the best player you've ever played against?
