The University of Denver Hockey team is back in the NCAA tournament. This year, after closing the season ranked #1 in the country, DU was awarded the #1 overall seed for the upcoming NCAA Division I Ice Hockey Championship! The Pioneer Hockey Team last won a National Championship in 2005, so the campus is extremely excited about the possibility of another title run.
This year, the Pios have been led by Will Butcher, a finalist for the Hobey Baker Memorial Award. Butcher was also recently named the NCHC Player of the Year and Offensive Defenseman of the Year. Other Pios collecting conference hardware included Henrik Borgstrom (Rookie of the Year) and Tanner Jaillet (Goaltender of the Year). The Pioneers will take on Michigan Tech in the first round of the Midwest Regional Saturday, March 25th at 1pm ET.
