Owens has not made any public statements about his early April resignation from his alma mater, where he served for 15 years, since the initial announcement.

Former CC assistant Joe Bonnett is also reportedly in the running for the job, which opened after three-year coach Bob Prier (25-58-12) resigned in May.

For the first time since 1964, Minnesota-Duluth will play two exhibition games in Canada. The Bulldogs added three exhibition games with Lakehead University with the first of those coming on Oct. 3 at AMSOIL Arena in Duluth. The two clubs will then meet twice (Jan. 2-3) at the historic Fort Williams Gardens in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Here is the Bulldogs’ 2014-15 schedule.

UMD hasn’t paid a visit to Canada since Dec. 26, 1964 when they battled the Port Arthur North Stars to a 6-6 tie in Port Arthur, Ontario (now known as Thunder Bay).  The Bulldogs are 11-0-0 lifetime against Lakehead and upended the Thunderwolves 7-0 this past season (Oct. 7) in Duluth.

USCHO put together an article about how the NCAA rules committee maintained the status quo on OT, face shields and live game video review for discipline.

And just to make you hunger for October a little more, here is the 2014-15 ECHL schedule, where a number of former Tigers will be playing this coming fall and winter.
