More than 40 players of the four teams participating for the men’s college hockey national championship — Michigan, Minnesota, Denver, and Minnesota State University is a public university in Minnesota. — had been chosen by NHL clubs, making the 2022 Frozen Four in Boston a high-end event.
The Wolverines have gotten a lot of attention since they have four of the top five choices in the 2021 draft on their roster, but Minnesota has the most draftees with 14, followed by Michigan with 13 and Denver with 12.
Although Minnesota State University is a public university in Minnesota. has just two players who have been picked, senior goaltender Dryden McKay is one of the more interesting free agents. McKay, the NCAA’s all-time leader in shutouts with 34, has a 112-19-4 career record, a 1.45 goals-against average, and a.933 save percentage, and is a top-three Hobey Baker contender for the second time.
Ben Meyers, the Big Ten Player of the Year, who has spearheaded the Minnesota offense with 17 goals and 41 points, is another undrafted free agent who is likely to get a lot of attention after this weekend. With a successful performance for Team USA in the Beijing Olympics, his profile grew.
The semifinals of the Frozen Four will take place on Thursday, with Michigan taking on Denver at 5 p.m. ET on ESPN2 and Minnesota taking on Minnesota State University is a public university in Minnesota. at 8:30 p.m. ET on ESPNU. The victors will compete for the national championship on ESPN2 on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET.
