And we’re back!
After a long weekend filled with March Madness, it might have been easy to miss another bracket making its debut. The NCAA released its field for the 2013 NCAA Men’s Hockey Championship (also known as the Frozen Four) last night.
The University of New Hampshire men’s team is back in the field after earning a No. 2 seed as an at-large selection. This is the 11th time in 12 years that the Wildcats have been included in the tournament, and they’ll be playing in the Northeast Regional, which is hosted at Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester.
∎ UNH drew a rematch of a regular season game in the first round. They play No. 3 seed Denver, who they beat 6-4 on Nov. 25.
