In the Pipeline: 4/2/2018

Its the final week of the college hockey season with the Frozen Four set to commence in Saint Paul on Thursday and Saturday. Michigan, Minnesota-Duluth, Notre Dame and Ohio State will battle it out for the right to be crowned the 2018 NCAA Champion. A lot of Quinnipiac commits seasons have to an end but there is still some playing for the next couple of weeks. Let's take a look at how some of them did over the past week.

BCHL commits

While he was held off the scoreboard in Game 1 of the BCHL semifinal series, Ethan De Jong potted a goal and an assist in Game 2 for the Prince George Spruce Kings to take a commanding 2-0 series lead over the Powell River Kings. In 16 playoff games he has 18 points (10 goals, 8 assists) putting third in the league for playoff scoring.

T.J. Friedmann has said goodbye to the Victoria Grizzlies and junior hockey in an Instagram post. The 1998 born forward was expected to be part of the 2019-2020 recruiting but is now expected to be accelerated for the 2018-2019 season. There is still a lot of roster management stuff for Quinnipiac to work out with regards to this recruiting class as the coaching staff looks to remake the roster in lieu of the programs first losing season in over 20 years along with missing the NCAA tournament in back-to-back seasons.
