Hoeven Statement on UND Men's Hockey Going to the Frozen Four

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today issued the following statement congratulating the University of North Dakota’s men’s hockey team going to the Frozen Four after last night’s win over St. Cloud State, 4-1. It’s the seventh time in 11 years that they have made the Frozen Four:

“Last night’s UND win over St. Cloud State was an exciting game. After an early score by St. Cloud State less than two minutes into the game, UND tied it up. They made some spectacular saves to hold the line and score again in the second and third periods. Despite colds and flu, they just dominated the ice till the end.

“Congratulations to all of the players and to Coach Dave Hakstol for a spirited game and a great finish. We look forward to watching them and cheering them on in Boston!
