North Dakota is indefinitely without senior forward and assistant captain Mark MacMillan for the second time this season, the University announced Tuesday.
MacMillan suffered a lower body injury Saturday in North Dakota's 3-1 win over St. Cloud State blocking a Jonny Brodzinski shot. He will undergo surgery Wednesday. Although UND did not say MacMillan would miss the rest of the season, the NCHC leaders and #1 team in the Pairwise do not have too much time left with one weekend of regular season play remaining.
The senior, a 2010 4th draft pick by the Montreal Canadiens and #54 in the SB Nation College Hockey Top 100 NHL Prospects, leads UND with 16 goals in 29 games this season and has 99 points in his career. MacMillan missed 4 games earlier this year following wrist surgery.
