Pregame

The 16th-ranked University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team opens a non-conference series at No. 14 North Dakota Friday night (7:30 p.m., no TV, NCHC.tv pay stream, 1310 AM) without one of its top scorers.

Linus Weissbach, who’s tied for second on the team with eight points through six games, is out with a hand injury suffered in practice on Monday. It’s the first injury absence of the season for UW.

That puts freshman Jack Gorniak into a new role, as a second-line left wing and on the Badgers’ second power-play unit.
