The injury bug has hit UND early.
UND will be without three regular forwards this weekend — Colten St. Clair, Adam Tambellini and Brendan O’Donnell.
All three are out with injuries. St. Clair’s timeline has been revised to four-to-six weeks. He sustained his injury Saturday night against St. Cloud State. O’Donnell and Tambellini are listed as week to week.
Not sure when O’Donnell sustained his injury. Tambellini’s must have come in practice either late Wednesday or yesterday.
O’Donnell is tied as the team leader in goals with three and he has four points in six games. Tambellini has a goal and an assist in six games.
UND only has 12 healthy forwards remaining, so that means either every healthy forward will be in the lineup, or the coaching staff will dress seven defensemen.
Either way, it is very likely that senior Derek Rodwell gets into the lineup for the first time this season.
UND takes on Omaha at 7:07 p.m. Saturday and 5:07 p.m. Sunday.
