The team will host #4 Minnesota-Duluth for a pair of games this Friday and Saturday night at Thompson Arena. Game time both nights is 7 PM.

The Men enter the polls officially for the first time after being among those receiving votes since the season started. Dartmouth (4-0-3, 3-0-3) enters at #11 in both the USCHO poll, and the USA Today poll. The men play games five and six of their nine-game road trip in Boston this week, taking on #2 Boston College tomorrow night and #12 Boston University on Friday night. Last year Dartmouth defeated then-#1 BC 5-4 in OT at Thompson Arena despite being outshot 40-16.
