Well, the new season is around...

Avs prospect Brad Malone has advanced a bit and is now the second line center for the Sioux this year between Brett Hextall and Evan Trupp. He also is on the PP unit as well, first game it was the second unit, second game they were the first unit out for each PP.

His line was by far the best of the first home series of the year. Malone is a bit of a longshot prospect, but he is a guy to watch for in 2-3 years.


Freshman forward Danny Kristo(Habs prospect) is an amazing talent. He has some great flash to his game and is by far the most talented player on the ice.

If I'm not mistaken Kristo was the Americans 13th forward for the world juniors last year. I didnt know the Sioux got him...

Have not updated this, well, since the season started.

Kristo was one of the heroes on the World Juniors team that upset Canada. (he had a great goal last night to start the scoring, first bit of the highlights from last night in the link below)

Current and Former UND Hockey players took home 4 medals at the Olympics as well. 3 Silvers and 1 Gold. (Parise(silver), Toews(Gold), and the Lamoureux sisters(silvers))

Malone has had a very solid year as the club's second, and at times first, line center. He is an energetic player who plays well 5-5, PK, and PP. He may lack the hands to be a top 2 line player at the NHL level, but his physical nature, burst speed, and defensive game will likely make him a legit 3rd/4th line prospect. I actually think he compares favorably to a slightly less crazy and a bit better skating Darcy Tucker. Could be a great fit on the bottom two lines for the Avs in 2-3 seasons. (he has 1 year left with UND and likely will need a season or two in the AHL)

You can see a Malone goal at about the 1:20 mark of the Sioux-Gophers highlight video from last night. At the 2:50 mark you can see some of Malone's work down low in front of the net. He is a really solid board/net player.

Malone has a very good chance of being the next Captain of the Sioux I imagine next season. Another one of those character guys that the Avs have been looking for in college hockey. He will most likely never be a star in the NHL, but he could be a solid 2 way bottom 2 line player some day.

Another interesting fact, every UND current roster player has been drafted by an NHL team except for

Tate Maris (3rd String Goalie)
Chay Genoway (Team Captain, one of the best offensive D men in NCAA, but is only 5'9, and thats being generous)
Mario Lamoureux (3rd/4th line player, defense first player, also short at 5'9)
Darcy Zajac (not a fast enough player for NHL)
Evan Trupp (5'8 on skates, 5'6 in reality)
Ryan Hill (only player not to play a single game this year, Red Shirt D man)

Sioux are currently up 5-0 against RPI in the first round of the NCAA playoffs about half way through the 2nd. Game is on ESPN3, just google espn3 it is their free online streaming service, if people want to get a look at Brad Malone.

He scored the first 2 goals of the game and is going for the hat trick.


UND won the regular season title in the WCHA. They also won the WCHA playoffs this year.

They finished #1 in the polls in the NCAA, but are officially the #2 seed due to the computer rankings. Denver is the 2nd seed in the same bracket and they are favored to win their game to pit the two teams in a rematch of the WCHA playoff finals for a trip to the frozen four.
