Hockey Mascots

As promised here are the mascots of the NCAA Hockey Tournament Teams:

Boston College Eagles

Colgate Raiders

Denver Pioneers?  
Apparently DU has no official mascot, they have an unofficial mascot named Denver Boone.   This has sparked quite a bit of controversy at the college and an ongoing debate as to the nature of their mascot ensues.   I kinda like him.

Ferris State Bulldogs

Minnesota Golden Gophers
Apparently no issues with the orthodontically impaired student population.

Minnesota Stare Mavericks

North Dakota. 
No mascot until 2015. 
Previously had been the Fighting Sioux.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish
What about the Irish pacifists?

Providence Friars

Quinnipiac Bobcats

Robert Morris Colonials

St. Cloud State Huskies

U Mass Lowell River Hawks

Union College Dutchmen
No matter how much I tried I could not find a mascot for the team, apparently they like the name, but live in fear of offending those of Dutch descent.  Why not Hans Brinker, he of the Silver Skates?  Just an idea....

Vermont Catamounts (a local term for cougar, derived from cat of the mountain)

Wisconsin Badgers
