University of North Dakota Fighting Hawks Hockey TicketsThe University of North Dakota has a long and storied history in the world of NCAA hockey. North Dakota first fielded a varsity hockey team in 1946, and by 1948 they were a force to be reckoned with.

The North Dakota Fighting Hawks have also developed many long-term professional players over the decades. Stars like Derrick Byfuglien, Ed Belfour and T.J.
