ST. CLOUD, Minn. — The NCHC series between the Minnesota Duluth and St. Cloud State men's hockey teams has been rescheduled for two Tuesday nights in February.

The Huskies and Bulldogs will play on Feb. 8 and Feb. 22 at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center. Both games are scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. (NCHC.tv).

The original series between the teams was scheduled for Jan. 7-8 in St. Cloud, but had to be postponed due to COVID-19 protocols within the UMD program.

All previously postponed NCHC games have been rescheduled.

The two teams have not met yet this season, but played one another seven times last season with St. Cloud State winning the series 5-2. With the new rescheduled games, the Huskies and Bulldogs will meet four times in a span of 19 days.
