Our second set of quarterfinals takes place on day six of the 2020 NCHC Play of the Year Tournament, presented by TRIA Orthopaedic Center, with the final two quarterfinal match-ups available for fan voting.
In the third quarterfinal of the tournament, Minnesota Duluth's Hunter Shepard and Tanner Laderoute team up for a 200-foot sequence that you just have to see to believe in week 18, while Colorado College's Nick Halloran cuts to the middle of the ice, puts a St. Cloud State defenseman through the spin-cycle then sends a backhand shot top shelf in week 14 at St. Cloud.
In the last quarterfinal, North Dakota's Judd Caulfield finishes a nice tic-tac-toe sequence against Western Michigan in week 21, while Omaha goalie Isaiah Saville robs St. Cloud State on a point-blank shot in week 11.
Winning our first two quarterfinals on Monday were North Dakota's Jordan Kawaguchi and St. Cloud State's David Hrenak. Kawaguchi defeated Colorado College's Jack Gates with 74 percent of the vote, while Hrenak got past Western Michigan's Ethen Frank with 58 percent. Kawaguchi and Hrenak will meet in the first semifinal on March 18.
