When Chris Schultz played hockey for SUNY Geneseo in the mid-90’s, it was unrealistic to dream of reaching the Frozen Four. Each year, the Knights had a losing record. Nearly two decades later, as head of coach of his alma mater, Schultz doesn’t have to dream. He has his Knights in the Frozen Four.

Geneseo heads to Lewiston, Maine Wednesday where they will play St. Norbert in the national semi-finals on Friday. 

Schultz, an Aquinas grad and former coach of the Irish, has turned this program into a national power. Prior to the season, Geneseo had reached the NCAA tournament three times, never winning a single game. They have two games this year and are two away from a national championship.

Chris Schultz said, “To me, it's definitely special, you know. I was here a couple years that we had seven wins for the whole season and we don't even have that many losses this year, so we have come a long way."

Carson Schell, Geneseo Hockey captain, said, “To get this far, I think is just a real testament to the guys in our room and our coaching staff and since Geneseo hasn't been here, maybe that adds a little more, but to us, it's just another year where, um you know, we're succeeding.”

Geneseo and St. Norbert drop the puck at 4:00 p.m. on Friday.
