“To have a chance to watch Yale in the Frozen Four here in Pittsburgh is literally a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” offered Otto Chu, as fellow Ivy Leaguers filtered in and out of the Allegheny HYP (Harvard-Yale-Princeton) Club on April 11.

Alumni from across the nation including Kevin Allen, Dan Urban, Wes Oliver, Christian Manders, Katie Baker and Meg Gleason descended upon Bulldog “headquarters” for a few hours of mini-reunions and declarations of faith before the semifinals of the NCAA Men's Ice Hockey Division I Championship at Consol Energy Center

“I have four or five folded up in my sweatshirt,” said Stuart Gaul of the white and navy blue souvenir towels being snatched up as people headed off to watch the game.

Considered the “Cinderella Story” of the tourney, Yale's last appearance in the Frozen Four was 61 years ago in 1952. Yale won the semifinal against UMass-Lowell and went on to win the championship April 13 against Quinnipiac.
