There have been lots of questions in the last week about whether goaltender Aaron Dell will turn pro or whether he will return for his senior season.
I haven’t been able to get in touch with Dell to get any updates directly from him, but as was reported back in April, expect that he will sign and turn pro.
I don’t know what is taking so long, nor do I know which teams are in on Dell, but the situation remains the same as April: Dell will almost surely be playing pro hockey next year while freshman Zane Gothberg and junior transfer Clarke Saunders compete for the No. 1 job at UND.
Gothberg is the reigning USHL goaltender of the year and Saunders led the nation last year in saves per game at Alabama-Huntsville.
Dell holds UND’s record for wins in a season with 30.
If I hear more details, I’ll pass them along, but that’s the update for now.
