Fans celebrate NCAA hockey champs in Duluth

The NCAA hockey champions are celebrating back home in Duluth.

Fans gathered at the University of Minnesota Duluth campus gym Tuesday night to get a glimpse of the Bulldogs who captured their second consecutive men's Division 1 hockey title with a 3-0 win over the University of Massachusetts Saturday.

Minnesota Public Radio News says 11-year-old Soren Hanhan came decked out in a Bulldogs jersey. He says it's "pretty cool" to have a team that won back-to-back championships. UMD captain Parker Mackay and his teammates signed jerseys and greeted fans. Mackay was named Frozen Four Most Outstanding Player.

UMD has built a powerhouse program in recent years, with four national title game appearances and three titles in the past decade — more than any other college program.
