Ryan Duncan to be honored with “One More Shift” against Minnesota Duluth


GRAND FORKS, N.D. – Former University of North Dakota standout and 2007 Hobey Baker Award winner Ryan Duncan will skate “One More Shift” with the current UND men’s hockey team on Saturday, Feb. 24 against Minnesota Duluth at Ralph Engelstad Arena.


Duncan will be the seventh former North Dakota player to participate in the special recognition that started in 2018-19, joining Jim Archibald, Brandon Bochenski, Dave Christian, Ed Belfour, Matt Greene and Tony Hrkac.


The former Fighting Sioux was one of the best players to don the green and white, helping his teams reach three NCAA Frozen Fours, capture one WCHA regular season and one WCHA Final Five title from 2005-09. Duncan finished with 172 points and 85 career goals to sit tied for 13th and ninth all-time in the program’s record books, respectively, while playing in a school-record 175 games.


Duncan became the second NoDak player to ever win the Hobey Baker Award as the nation’s top player in 2007 after scoring 31 goals and adding 26 assists for a whopping 57 points in 43 games. He was named the WCHA’s Player of the Year as well as earning All-America honors.


Following his graduation in 2009, the Calgary, Alberta, native enjoyed a decade-long professional career that spanned over 540 games across North America and Europe.


Duncan will take the ice following the starting lineups on Saturday night against Minnesota Duluth. Puck drop is set for 6:07 p.m. (CT) from Ralph Engelstad Arena. Limited tickets remain and are available at
