M18AA - USA HOCKEY NATIONAL CHAMPIONS!
The M18AA team are adding some bling to the Patriot Ice Center by bringing home the GOLD medal! This is the second National Championship for head coach Mike Swift and the third for the Ducks overall!
Down by a deficit of 5-1 at one point in the game, the Ducks battled back and won the championship game 7-6! A lot of these boys grew up together with the Ducks, and for most of them this was the last game they will play together as a team -- but, boy, what a way to go out! We are so incredibly proud of you and the way you represent the Ducks organization!
The team went undefeated during the tournament by defeating the following teams:
- Wyoming - 12-3
- Utah - 5-3
- Georgia - 4-0
- Kentucky (semi final) - 6-3
- Idaho (championship) - 7-6
Congratulations to everyone!
