We are the Champions

With a solid, though weather delayed, 3-0 victory last night, Dartmouth won the ECAC(HL) regular season title for the first time in school history, earning a share of the Cleary Cup with Colgate and the top seed for the conference playoffs.

It gives the men’s hockey team its first title of any kind since head coach Bob Gaudet was in net back in 1980, when the team won the Ivy League title and advanced to the NCAA Frozen Four.

Thompson Arena will host the quarterfinal series in two weeks, as Dartmouth will face the lowest remaining seed after next weekend’s opening round. If all the seeds hold, Clarkson would return to town for the best-of-three series.
