After five seasons of sitting behind others — watching, cheering and providing feedback from the bench to his fellow goaltenders — Minnesota Duluth redshirt senior Ben Patt will make his first regular-season start this weekend when the No. 1-ranked Bulldogs play a nonconference series at Northern Michigan.

Patt’s first collegiate start comes after leading the team’s annual Movember campaign that raises fund and awareness for men’s health issues — both physical and mental — by growing mustaches.

My9’s Zach Schneider and KDAL’s Bruce Ciskie also join this week’s episode to discuss the weekend of action as the UMD men visit Northern Michigan and the No. 8/9-ranked UMD women host WCHA rival and No. 2-ranked Ohio State. They also talk about overtimes in college hockey and how many points they should be worth.
