2010-2011 UMD Schedule Released

It is never too early to check out nest year’s Bulldog Hockey schedule and mark your calendars. That is especially true this year as the current DECC Arena will be replaced as the home of UMD Hockey by the DECC Expansion (soon to be called the DECC?).

In the new WCHA with 12 teams after adding Bemidji State and Nebraska – Omaha, the rotation of opponents will be different.

Instead of playing five teams four times per season (a series at home and away), teams will play three teams four times. The new scheduling system is named the pod system. There will be three pods of four teams.

The pods are controlled by the current rival system, so each team will play another team, their “rival”, four times every year. UMD’s rival will remain Michigan Tech. The other two teams that make up the pod will rotate every year. The other teams in the Bulldog’s pod are MTU, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.
