NCAA Hockey: Frozen Four-Minnesota Duluth vs Notre Dame Marilyn Indahl-USA TODAY Sports

The Blackhawks will get one last look at some of their college prospects and a chance to see some potential top undrafted players as well during the next few weeks in the NCAA tournament.

But first the selection show will unveil the 16-team field Sunday.

The selection process is divided into two parts. The first one gives six conference champions automatic bids to the tournament, while the second phase is selecting the remaining best 10 teams on an at-large basis.

A four-team single-elimination regional will determine the regional final matchup. The four regional winners will advance to the Frozen Four on April 11 at KeyBank Center in Buffalo. The semifinal winners will play for the national championship two days later.

Here are the six conference tournament champions:

Atlantic Hockey: American International

Big Ten: Notre Dame

ECAC: Clarkson

Hockey East: Northeastern

NCHC: Minnesota Duluth

WCHA: Minnesota State
