Denver Wins The NCAA Men’s Hockey Championship

Greg Wyshynski of ESPN.

Denver scored five straight third-period goals to capture the NCAA Division I men's hockey championship with a 5-1 victory over Minnesota State at TD Garden on Saturday night.

It's the ninth title in program history for the Pioneers, tying Michigan's NCAA record for the most ever. Denver had eliminated the Wolverines in the semifinals of the Frozen Four to advance to the title game against the Mavericks.

"It certainly was a goal to get to nine," said Denver coach David Carle. "The ultimate goal is to be the first one to 10, I will tell you. Winning Thursday against Michigan was a huge step in that direction, and obviously tonight is an even bigger step."

The Frozen Four Starts Tomorrow

from Chris Peters of the Daily Faceoff,

The 2022 NCAA Men’s Frozen Four is set for Boston beginning Thursday and will showcase some of the very best talent college hockey has to offer. It includes three of the most historically successful programs in college hockey and one of the programs that’s spent the last decade or so rising to prominence to becoming an annual contender. While Michigan, Minnesota and Denver are all in a familiar spot, Minnesota State will be playing in just its second Frozen Four after making it last season as well.

The Frozen Four action kicks off at TD Garden Thursday at 5:00 p.m. ET between Michigan and Denver, with Minnesota State taking on Minnesota at 8:30 p.m. ET.

The rosters for the four teams in this Frozen Four feature 41 NHL draft picks representing 25 different teams. For reference, last year there were 18 drafted players in the Frozen Four.

Minnesota leads the way with 14 draftees, Michigan has 13 including seven first-rounders, Denver has two and Minnesota State has two. There are also a few more players that will be picked up in the NHL draft this year or signed as college free agents. If you want to see a lot of future NHL players, this is a good year to check out the Frozen Four.

If You Think Reviews In the NHL Are Long

from Christian Babcock of The Rink Live,

The Bemidji State men’s hockey team would not let its season end.

Moments after No. 1 Minnesota State apparently vanquished the Beavers with a goal by Josh Groll in overtime to claim the CCHA Mason Cup Championship on Saturday in Mankato, BSU head coach Tom Serratore and his assistants contested the goal, arguing that one of the goalposts had lifted up and made the goal invalid.

After a review that lasted over an hour, the right people agreed with them, and overtime was restarted. But after another 2:09 of clock time, MSU’s Jack Neely put an official end to the wild affair with a snipe that finished Bemidji State’s season for good.

“We were given a second life,” Serratore said. “A call had to be made, and it was the right call. It was odd, obviously, the time that elapsed, but we get back out there and we have an opportunity of winning a championship. And it just didn’t happen.”

Asylum May Be The Next Step For Some Russian Players

from Rick Westhead of TSN,

Russian players, their representatives and National Hockey League teams have contacted immigration lawyers in recent days to discuss the process of applying for asylum or permanent residency in North America, according to sources familiar with the subject.

All are concerned that the U.S. and Canadian governments may slow or stop issuing new work permits and travel visas to Russian athletes, said Joe Kirkwood, a San Diego-based immigration lawyer who has worked on player visa issues for more than 25 NHL and American Hockey League teams.

“My teams are scared,” Kirkwood said. “They are concerned that Russian players in their systems may be required to leave, or that their visas may not get renewed. The worry is about sanctions. The U.S. and Canada are adding new sanctions almost every day and it’s impossible to say what that will mean for the granting of new visas for foreign workers.

Ukraine Asks Canada To Stop Issuing Travel Visas And Permits To Russians

from Rick Westhead of TSN,

Ukraine’s official diplomatic representative in Canada has asked the Canadian government to stop issuing travel visas and work permits to Russian athletes, a move he says will put more pressure on Russian president Vladimir Putin to abandon his invasion of Ukraine.

“We ask your government to suspend cooperation with Russians in sports, to stop granting visas and work permits to Russian athletes," Andrii Bukvych, Chargé d’Affaires of the Ukrainian embassy in Ottawa, wrote in a letter sent Wednesday to Pascale St-Onge, Canada’s Minister of Sport. "[Taking] into consideration the gravity of [the] situation, I urge you, dear minister, to consider this request in the shortest possible terms.”

A spokeswoman for St-Onge confirmed the Canadian government received Bukvych's letter and is preparing a public response.
