Icers Ready to Battle For Championship

While most of us are thinking of sand and sunscreen for Spring Break, the Penn State Icers are thinking of ice and trophy polish. They are heading to Chicago to play in the ACHA Division 1 Men’s Hockey National Championships with hopes of bringing home some hardware instead of a nice tan.

Throughout this season, the Icers have compiled a 27-4-1 record while winning the ESCHL regular season and tournament titles. Now there is only one thing left on their preseason to-do list: Win a national championship.

Penn State received the #2 seed in the national tournament and play the SUNY-Canton Kangaroos in the first round on Saturday. If they prevail over the marsupials on skates, they will play the winner of Oklahoma and Central Oklahoma on Sunday.

It will truly be a grueling stretch for the guys who will have to win 4 games in 5 days in order to claim their stake as the #1 team in the country. But after not being in the national championship game the last 2 years after making at least an appearance the previous 10 years, you can be sure that the barbarians on ice will be hungry to bring home a title (and not drunken beach stories) to State College.
