UND received a verbal commitment Tuesday from Grand Rapids sophomore forward Mitchell Mattson (no relation to Nick).
Mattson is a 6-foot-3 forward with good skills. He’s UND’s first 1998-born recruit. Mattson’s arrival date is still up in the air.
Mattson also had an offer from Minnesota Duluth and was planning to visit Minnesota, but after his trip to Grand Forks, he knew that’s where he wanted to play college hockey.
His older sister, Sidney, is a UND volleyball recruit.
