The @OmahaHKY Twitter account unveiled the team’s new “intro video” for the 2019-20 season.
Those familiar with Ak-Sar-Ben lore will notice images at the beginning of the video harkening back to the days when the Aksarben Village property (which sits across the street from UNO’s Baxter Arena) was a horse racing track.
The compilation also intersperses clips of UNO Hockey players at Baxter Arena with footage of a bucking bull in a dirt pen. The Beastie Boys song “Sabotage” plays through this year’s intro video.
Check out the new intro video below:

Finally, the two give their picks for the upcoming series vs. Wisconsin at Baxter Arena on Nov. 8-9.
NCHC Marketing and Communications Coordinator Paige Shacklett has an insightful feature on the NCHC website this week titled “Character Is Destiny” — focusing on the University of Nebraska at Omaha Hockey team’s 12-man freshman class.
Shacklett writes: “If the Greek saying, ‘character is destiny,’ proves true, the Mavericks are setting themselves up for glory.”
The article delves into the mindset of UNO Hockey Head Coach Mike Gabinet and includes commentary from forward Joey Abate and goalie Isaiah Saville.
