Not only is St. Cloud State the highest-ranked Division I team to ever visit the VBC, the Huskies are coming off a Frozen Four appearance last spring. St. Cloud lost to Quinnipiac in the national semifinals.

As you may have heard, the Huskies feature Huntsville native Nic Dowd. The senior captain has 34 goals and 54 assists in his St. Cloud State career.

At 3-1, the Huskies are currently tied for first place atop the new National Collegiate Hockey Conference with Nebraska-Omaha. St. Cloud is coming off a split at home with Miami last weekend.

UAH and St. Cloud State have one common opponent. The Huskies won 3-2 and tied 2-2 against Bemidji State to open the season in St. Cloud.

St. Cloud State has won all nine meetings against the Chargers. Six of those games were in St. Cloud, including two last season. The first four meetings came all the way back to 1988.
