NCHC pick: Oct. 12

There’s one game involving an NCHC team this Sunday in the Icebreaker tournament.

Sunday, Oct. 12

Minnesota-Duluth vs Notre Dame
Candace: Minnesota-Duluth gave top-ranked Minnesota all it could handle in the first game of the tournament. Maybe playing their home state rival previously will lift the Bulldogs. Minnesota-Duluth 3-2
Matthew: I really didn’t see Rensselear beating Notre Dame in South Bend, and it’s not great news for UMD that that’s what happened. Fighting Irish coach Jeff Jackson said after his team’s game with RPI on Friday that this season will be a work in progress, which could be designed to tone down expectations, but I think they’ll enough progress against the Bulldogs to win. Notre Dame 4-2
