Some news on No. 4 ranked North Dakota, from the Associated Press:
AP -- Four North Dakota hockey players accused of supplying alcohol to minors at a team party last September have changed their pleas to guilty.
Danny Kristo, Andrew MacWilliam, Carter Rowney and Joe Gleason reached plea agreements last week and were given deferred sentences.
Charges were dropped against a fifth player, Corban Knight. Knight is a candidate for the Hobey Baker award, given annually to the top player in college hockey. Grand Forks County prosecutor David Jones tells The Associated Press there was no evidence that Knight was involved in the case.
MacWilliam, Kristo, Rowney and Knight are captains and were suspended for the first game of the season. School spokesman Jason Hajdu says no additional discipline is expected.
