Penn State Icers head to nationals as No.1 overall seed

Penn State Icers head to nationals as No.1 overall seed

Hyped by on February 16, 2012 Website:

The Penn State Icers received 26 out of a possible 37 first place votes in the final American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) poll, locking up the No. 1 overall seed at the National Tournament in Cleveland in March. Penn State, which still has two games left to play, is 25-3-1 so far on the season.

This will be the first year that the ACHA National Tournament will feature a 20-team field. Last year it included only 16 teams, but during the league meetings in Naples, Florida in June, 4 more teams were added. The single-elimination format will stay the same, with the top 12 seeds receiving byes in the first round. The change comes at a cost however, as there will be no more consolation games for teams that lose on the first day.
