FREDONIA, N.Y. - The State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) men’s ice hockey regular season came to an end Saturday and the top six teams in the standings will now advance to the 2010-2011 tournament.

Oswego State closed out the regular season at 22-3-0 overall and 15-1-0 in the SUNYAC standings and will be in the number one seed in the tournament receiving a first round bye. The Blue Knights, who are the No. 2-seed in the SUNYAC Playoffs, will also get a first round bye with a 16-7-2 overall record and 10-5-1 in the league.

No. 3 Buffalo State will host No. 6-seeded Fredonia in a SUNYAC quarterfinal contest on Wednesday Feb. 23 at 7 p.m. The teams split a pair of regular-season match ups.

Plattsburgh will serve as the No. 4 seed and take on fifth-seeded Morrisville on Wednesday. The Mustangs defeated the Cardinals on the road, 3-2, in mid-November before Plattsburgh avenged the loss two weeks ago with a 6-4 victory.

Oswego will face the lowest remaining seed in the semifinals on Saturday Feb. 26 and Geneseo will play the other winner from the quarterfinals. The finals are slated for Saturday March 5.
