Look Back at the NCAA Midwest Regional


NCAA Championship Midwest Regional Champions
The Ohio State men’s hockey team, a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament for the first time, posted two wins in the Midwest Regional in Allentown, Pa., over the weekend to advance to the Frozen Four for the second time in program history and first since 1998.

In the regional, the Buckeyes topped Princeton, 4-2, in the semifinal and then ousted defending national champion Denver 5-1 in the final.


Buckeye goalie Sean Romeo was named the Most Outstanding Player of the regional after making 53 saves on 56 shots for a .946 save percentage, with a 1.51 goals-against average. He was joined on the Midwest Regional All-Tournament Team by forwards Tanner Laczynski and Dakota Joshua and defenseman Sasha Larocque.

Next Stop – Saint Paul, Minnesota
The Buckeyes will head to the Xcel Energy Center for the 2018 Frozen Four. In the national semifinals at 6 p.m. ET April 5, Ohio State will take on Minnesota Duluth. Two Big Ten teams – Notre Dame and Michigan – will meet in the other semifinal at 9 p.m. ET April 5. The championship game is slated for 7:30 p.m. ET April 7.

Ohio State and Minnesota Duluth met in the first round of the 2017 NCAA Tournament, a 3-2 overtime win by the Bulldogs in Fargo, N.D.
