Quinnipiac gets top overall seed in NCAA men's ice hockey tourney
Bristol, CT (Sports Network) - Quinnpiac University, regular-season champions in the ECAC, was selected as the top overall seed as the field of 16 teams was announced for the 2013 NCAA men's ice hockey tournament on Sunday night.
The Bobcats (27-7-5), who spent multiple weeks atop the national rankings in the second half of the campaign, will open up as the top program in the East Region in Providence, RI. Despite a sudden exit in the ECAC semifinals to eventual playoff champion Yale, the Connecticut-based school garnered enough notice to gain the lofty honor.
Hockey East regular-season and playoff titlist UMass-Lowell (26-10-2) was awarded top billing in the East Region, playing out of Manchester, NH; Minnesota, (26-8-5) which remained atop the rankings was named the premier club in the West Region from Grand Rapids, MI; Notre Dame (25-12-3) -- the final champion in the history of the CCHA, snagged the Midwest Region's first slot and will host in Toledo, OH.
