North Dakota vs. Minnesota in Las Vegas - October 2018

Recommended Posts

This is nice but to have to wait for UND/MN to resume playing only to have it be in Las Vegas is kind of a bummer, hope at least it will be televised.

They resume the rivalry next season:

The rivalry will resume next season with a two-game series in Mariucci Arena. In 2016-17, they will play a two-game series in Ralph Engelstad Arena. The following year, it will be the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Game in Las Vegas.

The teams will play next season (2016-2017) in Minneapolis. They will play in Grand Forks the following season (2017-2018). This Las Vegas game is in fall of 2018.

Isn't there a new NHL potential Arena being built ?

& when is the NHL going to decide on expansion  ?

That arena is like regionals in Fargo

The arena in Vegas holds roughly 7700...too bad they didn't have it at Excel or Target Field. (although an outdoor venue game would need to be played a little later in the year)

Sam Boyd stadium. If la can have an outdoor game why not us.

I knew we played them at Mariucci for a series but wasn't aware of the one in GF. That's great then the Vegas game won't be so bad but I still hope it's televised.

It most likely will be televised by FSN, but I could see the B1G Network wanting to televise that game.

Do you think the Orleans would sell out easily?

I think so, the problem would be the snow birds in Phoenix who haven't left or have gone home for christmas. Not making the trip over.

this is already penciled in as a "MUST DO"  , Vegas Baby...SIOUX/Rodent hockey...I am fairly certain that outside of winning a National title it will not get any better than that...

Agreed combining two of my favorite things: UND Hockey and Vegas.

I try to convince my friends to get engaged just so I can go to Vegas for a bachelor party.  Now only a short 3 year wait until this game!

I thought Vegas was getting a new Arena?

Las Vegas' new arena will hold about 17,500 for hockey and will be finished in the spring of 2016.  http://arenalasvegas.com/about/quick-facts.aspx   It will be a fantastic facility and would be a great venue for the ND v. MN rivalry, but is owned by a different company (MGM Resorts and AEG) than the Orleans Arena (Boyd Gaming).

I have been to many hockey games in the Orleans Arena and it is also a good venue - all seats have good proximity and view of the ice and has luxury boxes.  There have been many Division 1 basketball games held there over the holidays, with big name programs, like North Carolina having played .  

It will be a great event for ND hockey and the City of Las Vegas - who will likely have an expansion NHL team playing in their first or second season by that time.
