The Arizona State men’s hockey team is dancing for the first time.

The Sun Devils on Sunday were selected as one of 16 representatives for the 2019 NCAA Division I Men’s Hockey Tournament, their first selection in the program’s four-year history.

ASU is slotted as the No. 3 seed in the Midwest Regional and will face No. 2 Quinnipiac in the opening round next Saturday at 4:30 p.m in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

The Sun Devils finished the regular season 21-12-1, their first winning season and 20-win season in program history.

ASU is the first independent to earn an at-large bid in the NCAA Tournament in 27 years.

Men’s ice hockey became a sanctioned NCAA sport at ASU for the 2015-16 season.
