UWRF hockey opens season
When the D3Hockey.com preseason poll came out Oct. 18, UW-River Falls' hockey coach Steve Freeman's club already accomplished one goal prior to even playing a game.
The Falcons came in at No. 14 in the national poll, and were selected to finish second in the NCHA behind two-time defending national champion St. Norbert College.
"We want to be recognized as a top team in the nation," Freeman said about his 2012-13 squad.
