BRIDGEPORT, Conn. — Canton native Greg Carvel is going back to the Frozen Four with a lot of help from a former St. Lawrence University player.

Carvel, a former SLU head coach, makes the Frozen Four for the second straight time. His 2019 team made it to the national championship game.
The Minutemen (18-5-4 overall) will play again in a semifinal in Pittsburgh on April 8.
