Justin Fontaine wanted to play college hockey someplace he would get a lot of ice time from the beginning.
He picked Minnesota Duluth, located in a port city on Lake Superior.
"Friends and family had to Google it to see where I was headed," said Fontaine, a Bulldogs senior right winger from Bonnyville, Alberta. "It's pretty much across Canada. But it's something I'll never regret, that's for sure."
Especially with how his career is ending. Fontaine and the Bulldogs will play Michigan in the NCAA Frozen Four championship game at 6 p.m. Saturday at Xcel Energy Center.
