Later tonight, Kings prospect Derek Forbort and the North Dakota Fighting Sioux will continue their quest for an eighth NCAA National Championship.
And then you have a whole group of more guys in the system, like Jeff Zatkoff – starting goaltender in Manchester. Just a few years ago he was roaming the campus of Miami University (Ohio) with defenseman Alec Martinez.
