All five of the NCAA Division I of Minnesota hockey programs are in the tournament for the first time in NCAA history. The big bid for the Beavers ends an 11-year drought for the program.

The NCHC was one of two leagues to receive four bids, along with the Big 10. Notre Dame snuck into the field as an at-large after ECAC postseason champion St. Lawrence had to withdraw from the tournament on Sunday due to a positive COVID- 19 test result by head coach Brent Brekke.

Sunday’s unveiling of the 16-team field marks the sixth consecutive season that UMD received an NCAA tournament hold (or seventh if you take into account UMD was a slot for the 2020 tournament canceled by COVID-19). The Bulldogs have appeared in eight of the previous 10 NCAA tournaments held.

The still-two-time defending champion, who has also appeared in the last three NCAA title games (2017, 2018, 2019), are 13-3 in the NCAA tournament dating back to 2015. The Bulldogs are 9-0 in first-round games since the NCAA went to the regional format in 1988.

UMD finished third in the NCHC this season, dropping out of the Frozen Faceoffs via a semi-final loss against St. Cloud State. The Bulldogs are competing in NCAA Tournament 2-5 in their last seven games this year.

The NCAA tournament is where UMD has starred for the past decade, plus three national titles (2011, 2018 and 2019). Since Coach Scott Sandelin took over in 2000, the Bulldogs have been 21-6 in the NCAA tournament.

One of those national championship victories was Michigan in 2011 in St. Paul, when Sandelin and the Bulldogs defeated the Wolverines 3-2 in extra time at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.

This Monday, The Rink Live reporters Brad Schlossman, Matt Wellens, Jess Myers, Austin Monteith, Jason Feldman and Mick Hatten will be together on the podcast TheRinkLive.com to discuss the 16-team NCAA Division I men’s hockey tournament.

This story was updated at 6:35 PM with game times and the rest of the NCAA links. It was originally published on March 21, 2021 at 6:17 PM.
