The Rink Live's Kirsten Krull, Mick Hatten, Matt Wellens, Jess Myers, and Brad Schlossman meet to catch up on the first weekend of November college hockey action. Hatten recaps St. Cloud State's overtime win and loss at Denver, Schlossman reviews North Dakota's win and shootout loss at Omaha, Wellens tackles Minnesota Duluth's weekend split at Colorado College.

Wellens also discusses the Bulldogs women dropping two to the University of Minnesota and helps preview UMD's series at St. Cloud State. Hatten talks about the second straight WCHA series sweep for SCSU at Bemidji State. Schlossman looks ahead to the series between Denver and North Dakota, the defending co-NCHC champions.

The group also discusses more protocol penalties being called, the changing way that coaches are having to approach challenges and some of the frustrations that coaches are having.

The question of the week for the reporters is to give an assessment of the goaltending for the respective teams that they cover.

Mick Hatten is a reporter and editor for Forum News Service and helps manage, a website dedicated to hockey. He began working for Forum Communications in November 2018 and has covered St. Cloud State University hockey since 2010.
