Quinnipiac snags top seed in NCAA tourney; UMass Lowell, Minnesota, Notre Dame other No. 1s

Top-ranked Quinnipiac is the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA hockey tournament despite a loss in its conference tournament semifinals.

The Bobcats are joined by UMass Lowell, Minnesota and Notre Dame as the No. 1 regional seeds in the 16-team field announced Sunday.

Quinnipiac (27-7-5), which lost to Brown 4-0 in the East Coast Athletic Conference semifinals, is the No. 1 seed in the Northeast Regional and will play Canisius on Saturday in Providence, R.I. The other two teams playing in Providence are ECAC champion Union and defending national-champion Boston College.

The rest of the field features Wisconsin, Denver, New Hampshire, Yale, North Dakota, Niagara, St. Cloud State, Miami (Ohio) and Minnesota State.

The Frozen Four is in Pittsburgh.

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
