American International College is heading to the NCAA’s for the first time in program history. The Yellow Jackets will represent the Atlantic Hockey Conference as undisputed league champions after claiming both the regular season and tournament championships.
This has gotta feel amazing for their senior class. They played their best hockey of the season down the stretch. That included the magic left in the tank to edge out Niagara in OT to claim their first Atlantic championship.
Winning the conference is crucial considering the likelihood, or lack thereof, of the Atlantic finishing with two-bids. American International College did what they needed. Now, the opportunity to prove themselves against the best teams in the nation is here.
