In contrast to the Husker football program, UNO Mav hockey seems to be on the rise after an upper-division finish in the CCHA last season. MavRick's blog is firing up with lots of good information as the season nears. UNO's biggest loss from last season was goalie Chris Holt who was a late signee with the New York Rangers. But UNO returns a solid core of underclassmen who led the surprise rise of the Mavericks last season.
If UNO can find an answer at goalie, UNO is looking at their first NCAA tournament appearance this season.
