North Dakota will rely heavily on their European products in 2018-19.

#27 Ludvig Hoff

  • Forward
  • Junior
  • Oslo, Norway

Hoff only saw 25 games of North Dakota action last season. The reason behind that is the fact that Hoff represented his home country of Norway in 2018’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. The Oslo native played in three Olympic competitions for the Norwegians. As for his time with the Fighting Hawks last season, Hoff notched three goals and six assists in those 25 games.

#25 Joel Janatuinen

  • Forward
  • Senior
  • Espoo, Finland

The Finnish product began his 2018-19 season strong with two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in North Dakota’s exhibition victory over Manitoba. Janatuinen finished up last season with a plus-9 rating while accumulating 13 points for North Dakota. He also had one game of multiple goals in 2017-18, scoring twice against Colorado College on February 10.
