For the second year in a row, the North Dakota Fighting Hawks hockey team won the Penrose Cup as the National Collegiate Hockey Conference's top regular season team.

In front of their home fans at Ralph Engelstad Arena, Riese Gaber had one assist in a 7-1 triumph over Omaha which gave North Dakota their 17th win of the season and a conference championship.

NCHC commissioner Josh Fenton was on hand to present the Penrose Cup to UND at the conclusion of the game.
