In basketball it's all about March Madness, but in college hockey the quest for the Frozen Four begins on Friday.
In all, the Merritt Centennials will have 5 alumnus participating in the tournament on 3 different teams. The Michigan Tech Huskies will be taking on the No. 1 seeded Notre Dame Fighting Irish, and the Huskies will have 3 former Cents competing: Devin Kero (G-2013-14), Gavin Gould (F-2013-16) , and Dane Birks (D-2012-2014) (who is a draft pick of the Pittsburgh Penguins).
In another matchup, the Providence Friars are taking on the Clarkson Golden Knights, and Brandon Duhaime (F-2014-15), drafted by Minnesota in 2016, will be adding his talents to the Friars side.
Finally, Josh Teves (D-2014-15) will be looking to help the Princeton Tigers upset the No. 1 Ohio State Buckeyes.
The round of 16 begins this Friday with the Frozen Four going from April 5-7th in St. Paul Minnesota.
