After winning the NCAA men's ice hockey championship, UMD will celebrate at Romano Gym on Tuesday, April 16th.

The event, which is free and open to the public, begins at 6 p.m. (doors open one hour earlier) and will include a recognition ceremony followed by a team autograph session. The 2011, 2018 and 2019 national championship trophies will also be on display for photo opportunities and as will information on NCAA championship gear and 2019-20 UMD season tickets.

The Bulldogs claimed their 3rd NCAA title Saturday night with a 3-0 victory over UMASS at the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, NY. UMD was a repeat champion after winning last year too. Surprisingly the number one team in the country was ousted in the first round, and the Bulldogs looked like that might happen to them, but once out of the first round, UMD looked like the favorite.

I was able to watch every game in the playoffs and UMD looked calm and collected. This years team was much more confident. I think the difference was that they were young and had been there last year.
