  • the team made NCAA division III tournament appearances in 2004, 2015. 2017 and 2018, the school did not participate in the 2012 tournament due to the conference only having five members (at the time) and not automatically receiving a tournament bid with the championship as the threshold is a minimum of seven members for an automatic berth. The team earned an invitation to the 2020 NCAA Division III Men's Ice Hockey Tournament but the tournament was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
