Nebraska-Omaha coach Dean Blais will not be with his team this weekend when it plays Minnesota State in a home-and-home series. Blais is serving as the U.S. coach in the world junior tournament, which begins next week and the national team will begin a training camp together this weekend in Grand Forks, N.D., and play an exhibition game against North Dakota. UNO associate head coach Mike Hastings will take over the head-coaching duties. Hastings was an assistant coach with Minnesota last season and joined the Omaha staff when Blais was hired in the offseason.
