Utica University to host University of New England in NCAA Tournament

This year marks the return of the NCAA Division III Men’s Hockey Tournament, which hasn’t taken place since 2019 due to COVID-19.

The Utica University Pioneers earned a spot in the 2020 tournament, but unfortunately could not compete. The Pioneers have now earned a spot in this year’s tournament after a very successful season that has resulted in the team being ranked No. 2 in numerous national polls.

How they got here

The Utica University men’s hockey team is currently 25-2-1 and finished the regular season as the top team in the United Collegiate Hockey Conference.

The Pioneers followed that up with a UCHC tournament victory that earned them an automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament.
