University of Minnesota Gophers forward Zach Budish will be the only Nashville Predators prospect participating in this year's NCAA Division I Hockey Tournament. The senior is playing in his last season with the Gophers and would like to come out on top by winning it all in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Minnesota finished the season ranked second in college hockey.
Budish, a 6'3" winger, ended the regular season with 35 points (13 goals, 22 assists) in 39 games in the WCHA.
Other Predators' prospects Jimmy Vesey of Harvard and Garrett Noonan of Boston U were unable to qualify for the tournament.
Here is the full bracket of the tournament.
