Jack Eichel's potential path to the 2015 Frozen Four will go through Manchester, N.H.
Eichel and Boston University will be the No. 1 seed in the Northeast Regional and open the 2015 NCAA Men's Hockey Tournament against fourth-seeded Yale at Verizon Wireless Arena on Friday after the bracket was announced Sunday. The other three top seeds are North Dakota in the West Regional, Minnesota State in the Midwest Regional and Miami (Ohio) University in the East Regional.
Minnesota State is the No. 1 overall seed in the field. The Mavericks will play fourth-seeded Rochester Institute of Technology at Compton Family Ice Arena on Notre Dame's campus Friday. Minnesota State has never won an NCAA tournament game, losing in the opening round in its previous three trips.
