Arkansas Wins Conference Hockey Championship

Most Arkansas fans don't realize they have a hockey team. Even fewer realize just how good the Razorbacks are.

Arkansas captured the South Eastern Collegiate Hockey Conference title in Birmingham, Ala. after they took down Alabama 2-1 in the league championship game game.

The Razorbacks outscored Tennessee and South Carolina 24-2 in the first two rounds of the tournament.

Arkansas (29-5-0) fell behind 1-0 but netted a pair of goals, including the game winner from Martin Sundstedt to claim the conference crown. The goal was Sundstedt's 22 of the season which is tied for the team lead with Marcel Toure.

Arkansas closes out the regular season next weekend as they host Oklahoma both Friday and Saturday night at the Jones Center in Springdale. The Sooners are responsible for two of the Razorbacks five losses this season.
