"There's a certain amount of pride when you put on a Sioux jersey. We know how fortunate we are to play here. Going into that Saturday game for third place, it didn't matter that it was for third place. For North Dakota, we're playing for the 70 years that there's been hockey here." - Andy Schneider.
"It's a great feeling to play for this program because you have so many loyal fans supporting you every game. You almost want to go out there and win games for the Sioux fan who has been sitting in that same seat all these years. So every game you're playing for something that is much bigger than yourself." - Jonathon Toews
"North Dakota hockey isn't about individual accomplishments. It's about the success of the team." - Ryan Duncan
I'm not ready to leave this place. It's too special of a place.If I had the chance to play here for 10 years, I would.- Chay Genoway 2009
"I came in as a little boy and I'm leaving as a more mature and wise kid",Malone said. "This place definitely changed my life drastically. This is the best place in the world. I don't think anyone fully realizes how great it is until it gets taken out from under you. Obviously, everyone knows we wanted to win it this year. But besides the wins and losses, everything here was first class and I don't think words can ever describe what it did for me." - Brad Malone, April, 2011
"There's a number of reasons," Blood said as to why he stayed in school. "One, to get an education. Two, because North Dakota is such a special place. There's nothing like playing in Ralph Engelstad Arena. We have a coaching staff that's second to none there, and they certainly know what they're doing when it comes to developing hockey players and moving them on to the next level."
“I wish I had a fifth year,” Blood said. “I would come back in a heartbeat. If I could tell anyone who is thinking of leaving early, I would tell them I’d do this again. There’s nothing like playing in The Ralph. There’s nothing like playing for Dave Hakstol. It’s such a special place. You won’t find it anywhere else. I’m glad I came back for a fourth year. I feel really good about it.”
Long Live the Fighting Sioux!
