UND has three Manitoba-born players:

TAYLOR DICKIN

Hometown: Selkirk

Credentials: Three seasons with MJHL Selkirk Steelers; league MVP after 40-goal, 92 points season in 2009-10; joined UND in January.

Dickin says: "I thought (last season's eight games) were huge, actually. I know now what I'm coming into for this season. I know it was only eight games but it was right at the end of the year when the games mean so much."

BRENDAN O'DONNELL

Hometown: Winnipeg

Credentials: 2nd on the BCHL's Penticton Vees last season with 72 points in 58 games; rookie of the year in the MJHL in 2009-10 with 61 goals in 53 games; sixth-round draft pick by Tampa Bay in 2010; has missed time with an injury to start this season.

O'Donnell says, on why UND: "It was a real easy decision. You hear a lot about the Sioux. I think I saw my first game here when I was 10 so ever since, it's been a dream of mine."

STEPHANE PATTYN

Hometown: St. Anne

Credentials: Strong two-way player was captain of the MJHL champ Portage Terriers last season; scored 62 points in 62 games, 10th in MJHL scoring; helped Terriers to ANAVET Cup and their berth in the RBC Cup national championship tournament.

Pattyn says: "The program and tradition are what guided me here."
