Ohio State’s 3-1 upset of Minnesota in one Big Ten semifinal last night further complicates things. They take on No. 2 seed Wisconsin.
Championships for OSU, Denver or Miami and the Atlantic Hockey winner eat up the bottom three seeds, meaning the first at-large berth goes to the No. 13 team. UND is tied for 14th with idle Michigan.
No. 8 seed Miami continues to play well of late and takes on No. 6 seed Denver in the NCHC postseason championship.
Minnesota-Duluth’s Caleb Herbert is leaving UMD early for the Capitals organization.
Ferris State plays Minnesota State for the WCHA championship.
