Series Preview: Omaha vs. Alaska Anchorage, Dec. 29 & 31 at Baxter Arena


They're back!

After heading home for the holidays, the Mavericks are back home at Baxter Arena for a pre-New Year's non-conference series with Alaska Anchorage.

The Mavs are 4-10-2 overall and are seventh in the NCHC with a 2-5-1-0/1 conference record. The Seawolves are 2-13-1 overall and 1-10-1 in the WCHA. UAA's second win of the season came in their most recent game, however, as they beat Bemidji State on Dec. 15.  UNO last played Dec. 8, losing 7-1 at St. Cloud State.

UNO and UAA last met in 2016 in the Brice Hockey Classic in Alaska. The Mavs beat the Seawolves 3-1 in that matchup. UNO leads the all-time series 6-2-1 and has won both meetings in Omaha. The Mavs have won the last five games between the schools.

There was no Tuesday Weekly Media Availability due to the Christmas holiday.
