MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – Ranked No. 1 in the nation, the Minot State men’s hockey team is still looking to improve as head coach Wyatt Waselenchuk is pleased to introduce the addition of a star two-way defender to an already potent lineup. Coach Waselenchuk announced this week that 6-foot-1 defenseman Logan Rands from Portage La Prairie, Manitoba has signed a National Letter-of-Intent and will join the team as a mid-season addition. Rands will be available to hit the ice for the Beavers (15-1-0 overall) when they next play at Midland (Neb.) on Jan. 6-7. The 175-pound defender from Manitoba played four seasons with the Virden Oil Capitals of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League, playing in 167 regular-season games with 13 goals and 85 assists, and in 16 playoff games with two goals and five assists. Rands also finished sixth in scoring by defensemen in the MJHL during the 2021-22 season (8 goals, 30 assists in 53 games). He also played in 20 games with the Cowichan Valley Capitals of the British Columbia Hockey League, scoring a goal and adding five assists during the COVID-shortened 2020-21 season.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings completed the biggest comeback in NFL history, erasing a 33-point deficit by beating the Indianapolis Colts 39-36 on Greg Joseph’s 40-yard field goal with three seconds left in overtime Saturday to win the NFC North division in their typical dramatic fashion. Kirk Cousins passed for 460 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Vikings (11-3), who trailed 36-7 late in the third quarter and became just the third team in league history to win 10 games in a season by eight points or fewer. The Colts (4-9-1) stumbled onto the infamous side of the list, just ahead of the Houston Oilers in the 1992 postseason. They blew a 32-point lead (35-3) and lost to Buffalo (41-38) in overtime. According to Sportradar data, the Vikings became only the second team in 1,551 regular-season or playoff games since 1930 that a team trailed by 30 or more points in and won. The Vikings took this rally all the way to their second possession of overtime. Cousins hit K.J. Osborn — who caught the first score and had a career-high 157 yards — for 15 yards. He found Adam Thielen — who had the second of three fourth-quarter touchdown passes — for 21 yards. Then he threw to Justin Jefferson for 13 yards to move into range. Ifeadi Odenigbo was called for delay of game for lying on Jefferson to try to keep the Vikings from setting up for the kick, putting Joseph 5 yards closer for the winner.
