College Hockey:
What I believe on Saturday morning

Based upon everything that we know, and how we’ve transcribed it to our PWR calculator, this is what I believe as of Saturday going into the championship games.

Teams In (10):

Boston College
Ferris State
Notre Dame
St. Cloud State

Autobids In (2):
AHA: Canisius/Robert Morris
NCHC: Miami/Denver

Must Win to Get In:

AHA: Canisius/Robert Morris
NCHC: Miami/Denver
HE: New Hampshire
Big Ten: Ohio State
ECAC: None
WCHA: None

Win and Definitely In, but can also go in At-Large:

WCHA: Minnesota State

Must win to be considered for at-large, but not definitely in:

NCHC: North Dakota

There are 12 of 16 spots taken up now, the teams eligible for those four open spots:

Minnesota State
North Dakota
New Hampshire
Ohio State

So Providence, Vermont, North Dakota and Michigan are hoping that Minnesota State, New Hampshire and Ohio State all lose, thereby upping its chances of getting into the tournament.

Have fun today!
