Fargo finished with a November record 6-2-0-0 and moved into fourth place in the Western Conference. Having three players in the top five scorers in the USHL certainly helps. Jack Adams is tied for the scoring lead with 26 points (16G, 10A), Blake Lizotte is tied for fourth with 23 points (3G, 20A), and Hank Crone is tied for fifth with 22 points (7G, 15A). Adams leads the USHL in goals and power play goals, Lizotte is second in assists and Crone is fourth in assists. Matthew Murray has carried the load in net, playing 984 total minutes, second in the league.
