March Madness isn't just about basketball.
The NCAA Hockey Tournament got under way Friday, with a pair of Oilers prospects colliding.
Harvard Crimson defenceman John Marino competed against Providence Friars rearguard Vincent Desharnais.
The Crimson defeated the Friars 3-0 to advance to the quarterfinals.
Both players had one shot on goal in the game but were held off the scoresheet.
Marino was taken in the sixth-round (154-overall) of the 2015 NHL Draft. Desharnais was selected in the seventh-round (183-overall) of the 2016 NHL Draft.
