Minnesota Duluth vs UMass Preview

The Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs and the UMass Minutemen will go toe-to-toe once again in the Frozen Four in a rematch of the 2019 national championship game this Thursday in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Minnesota Duluth is playing in their fourth consecutive Frozen Four and are on a quest to take home their third straight national title, while UMass is looking to avenge the 3-0 loss they suffered to the Bulldogs in the 2019 final.

If UMass is to get back to the championship game, they will have to overcome a major hurdle with personnel, as they will be down four players including their top goal scorer and top goalie. Redshirt senior Carson Gicewicz (17 goals, 7 assists, 24 points) and the goaltender who led the Minutemen on the 2019 run as a freshman, Filip Lindberg (9-1-4, 1.33 GAA, .946 SV %), will miss this year’s Frozen Four due to COVID protocols.

Gicewicz led Hockey East in goals scored this season and carried UMass to the east regional title with a hat trick in the Minutemen’s 4-0 win over Bemidji State.

Leading UMass in Gicewicz’s absence will be junior forward and assistant captain Bobby Trivigno (10 goals, 21 assists, 31 points), who was named a Hockey East First Team All-Star.

The Minutemen have hit their stride coming into Pittsburgh with an active 12-game unbeaten streak – the longest such streak in program history.

Their opponents, reigning two-time champion Minnesota Duluth comes into the Frozen Four off a marathon five-overtime 3-2 win over the tournament’s top seed North Dakota in the northwest regional final.

Freshman Luke Mylymok punched the ticket to Pittsburgh for the Bulldogs with his goal in the fifth extra period. The game, which lasted 142 minutes and 13 seconds, was the longest in NCAA tournament history.

Minnesota Duluth has been splitting time between two goalies in net this season and it paid off in the regional final when starter Zach Stejskal (8-4-3, 1.75 GAA, .923 SV %) had to be pulled after 57 saves in the fourth OT when he began to cramp up. In came Ryan Fanti (11-7-2, 2.35 GAA, .907 SV %), who stepped in with six huge saves in the sudden-death situation.

Leading the way for Minnesota Duluth on offense is senior forward Nick Swaney (13 goals, 14 assists, 27 points), who has won two national titles in his college career – one as a freshman in 2018 and one as a sophomore in 2019.

“It’s pretty tough to put into words,” said Swaney. “We’ve had three shots at it my career, my class, and we’ve got there every single year. It’s pretty special. This year with everything we’ve had to sacrifice and the ups and downs that we’ve had to go through, I think it makes it that much better.”

The winner of UMass vs. Minnesota Duluth will face the winner of Thursday’s first Frozen Four contest between Minnesota State and St. Cloud State. The national championship game will be held on Saturday night at 7 p.m. ET and be televised on ESPN.
