The Colgate men's hockey team is headed to the NCAA Tournament.

Despite losing to Union, 5-2 in the finals of the ECAC Tournament, the Raiders received an at-large bud.

Colgate (20-13-5) is seed third in the Midwest Regional and will play number two seed Ferris State this Friday at 4:30 in Cincinnati.

Colgate and Ferris State have played three times this season, with the Raiders holding a 2-1 edge.

The 2014 Frozen Four takes place April 10-12 in Philadelphia.
