“Northeastern is coming off a 25-13-1 season in 2021-22 that saw the program capture its first-ever Hockey East Regular Season championship and return to the NCAA Tournament for the third time in the last five years. Under the direction of second-year head coach Jerry Keefe, the Hockey East Coach of the Year a season ago, the Huskies return two of the top players in the nation in 2022-23 in All-Americans Devon Levi and captain Aidan McDonough.”

Western Michigan is coming off one of the best seasons in program history. The Broncos went 26-12-1, spending the majority of the season ranked in the nation's top 10. WMU earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament for the first time in program history, and picked up its first NCAA Tournament victory, a 2-1 overtime win over Northeastern. Head coach Pat Ferschweiler heads into his second season at the helm with a young and exciting group that returns 16-goal scorer Jason Polin and fifth-year senior forward Cole Gallant.
