North Dakota vs Notre Dame Preview

North Dakota (24-13-1) and Notre Dame (27-11-0) face in the NCAA tournament on Thursday.

Western Michigan stunned North Dakota 4-2 in the NCHC tournament on March 18, but the Fighting Hawks bring an experienced crew to the NCAA tournament. North Dakota last won it all in 2016 and hasn’t been back to the Frozen Four since in three tournament appearances.

Notre Dame fell short of the Big Ten Conference tournament on March 12 in a 2-1 loss to Michigan. The Fighting Irish took runner up in 2018 amid back-to-back Froze Four appearances but haven’t been back since. COVID protocols kept the Irish out of last season’s tournament.

“I just have been emphasizing the importance for our guys to recognize be grateful for the opportunity to play,” Notre Dame head coach Jeff Jackson said according to WNDU’s Matt Loch. “For me, it’s all about gratitude. Being how fortunate we are to be in this game and play this game, you know, based on what we went through last year. Just be grateful for the opportunity to play and enjoy the experience of being here.”

“Obviously, we’re playing to win and playing to get to the Frozen Four, but it’s just hard,” Jackson added per Loch. “Try to embrace the moment, you know, because you only get so many kicks at the can. So, you need to take advantage of them when you get those opportunities.”

NHL Draft picks abound in the matchup between the Irish and Hawks as both squads have nine players each who were selected by NHL teams in recent years.
