Where The Top 2024 NHL Draft Prospects Are In The NCAA Hockey Bracket

Here's where the top 2024 NHL Draft prospects in the Men's NCAA Hockey Tournament are seeded.

Mar 25, 2024 by Joe Harrington

The 2024 Men's NCAA Hockey Tournament began on March 24 when the 16-team bracket was released. Boston College, Boston University, Denver and Michigan State were the top four seeds. 

Boston University Hockey features the No. 1 prospect in the 2024 NHL Draft and looks to lead the Terriers to the Frozen Four for the second-straight year. Boston  University is seeking its first National Championship since 2009.

Michigan State Hockey is led by the No. 2 prospect Artyom Levshunov. The Spartans last won the national championship in 2007, the last time they went to the Frozen Four. Michigan State won the Big Ten Conference championships. 

Many players in the field have already been drafted by NHL Teams, but here is a list of player and where they're playing that are in Chris Peter's latest NHL Draft rankings. 

1. Macklin Celebrini, C, Boston University Hockey

Celebrini and the Terriers are playing in the Sioux Falls region and will face RIT. A win will set up a matchup with either Minnesota or Omaha. 

2. Artyom Levshunov, D, Michigan State Hockey

Levshunov and Michigan State faces Western Michigan in Maryland Heights. A win will set up a matchup between North Dakota and Michigan. 

11. Zeev Buium, D, University of Denver Hockey

Buium and Denver open the tournament against UMass in Springfield. A win will setup a matchup against the winner of the Maine and Cornell.
