Previewing The Frozen Four

from Ryan Kennedy of The Hockey News,

The field for the NCAA men's championship tournament has been set and though it will be hard to beat the drama of the women's final, I'm sure we'll see some awesome action once again.

This year's Frozen Four bracket was a little different, since the usual formula for determining the 16 teams was rendered impossible by the pandemic (you can't compare teams and opponents with almost no non-conference play, after all), so there was actually drama in terms of who got in. That drama was heightened when automatic bid St. Lawrence was forced to withdraw due to their coach contracting Covid-19, thus opening up a spot for another team.

This year's tournament takes place in Pittsburgh, with the semifinal on April 8 and the final on April 10. But before the Frozen Four is filled out, those teams will have to run through regionals in Fargo, Albany, Bridgeport and Loveland, Colorado. Here's a look at all 16 teams and what they bring to the table.
