DU hockey titles

An adjustment needs to be made on the wall outside the DU hockey team's locker room at the Ritchie Center. For now, duct tape will suffice but soon, someone will need to formally paint "2017" in the area which pays tributes to the Pioneers' hockey championships.

DU won that eighth title, tied with North Dakota for second most in Division I history (trailing Michigan's nine championships), on Saturday night. The Pioneers defeated Minnesota Duluth, 3-2, at the United Center in Chicago.

DU head coach Jim Montgomery came on the Mike Rice Show on Thursday, April 13 to talk about the title and take a peek ahead to what it might take to win number nine.
