UND defensemen look to build off a tremendous campaign last season.
#2 Gabe Bast
- Red Deer, Alberta
In a 2017-18 campaign that saw Bast miss 13 games due to different injuries, one could say his freshman season was stunted. However, in only 27 games played, Bast ranked fifth among NCHC freshman in points and assists. He ended up tallying 11 points and 10 assists by season’s end, still a high mark across the entire North Dakota roster. He scored the first goal of the season against Bemidji State.
#28 Hayden Shaw
- Woodbury, Minnesota
Shaw is one of three assistant captains this season for the Fighting Hawks. The senior had a career year in 2017-18. Shaw compiled career highs in games (40), points (13) and assists (10). He also featured a plus/minus rating that was tied for sixth best on the team (plus-7).
