They beat St. Lawrence in the Quarterfinals, Harvard in the Semi-Finals and Michigan State in the Finals to win the Championship. North Dakota featured Tony Hrkac, who set a record for points in a season with 116 while also winning the Hobey Baker Award. He was named the NCAA tournaments Outstanding Player with Kidd, Bob Joyce and freshman Ed Belfour being named to the All-Tournament team. This was Belfour’s only season at North Dakota. Kidd scored the first goal of the Championship game and then assisted on the 3rd as North Dakota built a 3-0 first period lead on the way to victory. Kidd would then be awarded All NCAA First Team honors for his 13-Goal, 47-Assist and 60-Point season in 47 Games Played.
