Norwich To Host Salem State In Opening Round Of NCAA Division III Ice Hockey Championship

The Norwich University men's ice hockey team will host Salem State University for the first round of the NCAA Division III Ice Hockey Championship. The game is scheduled for Saturday, March 11 with a 7:00pm puck drop at Kreitzberg Arena.

The NCAA announced the field of 12 on Monday morning with Norwich earning a spot in the field after defeating New England College in the New England Hockey Conference (NEHC) Championship and earning the league's automatic-qualification bid.

The last meeting between the Cadets and the Vikings was back in 2014, again during the first round of the NCAA tournament, in which Norwich claimed the 8-2 victory. The winner of Saturday's contest will face the winner of Oswego State and Hamilton College in the quarterfinals.
