We look at how many NCAA players are in each round of the playoffs.

The NHL playoffs are over and the Chicago Blackhawks have been crowned champion in an amazing finish. The NCAA left its mark on this year's playoffs with the stellar play of its alumni. From the gritty headsup play of newcomer Tory Krug to the stylish hands of veteran Jonathon Toews, the NCAA alumni had a huge presence with their respective teams in the playoffs.

We reviewed the rosters of the teams in the first round and there were a total of 98 NCAA players that hit the ice and contributed in at least one game

The Toronto Maple Leafs led all teams in the first round with nine NCAA players that played in at least one game in the first round. They were followed by Pittsburgh, San Jose, St. Louis and Vancouver who all had eight players who played at least one game.

In round two, there were 49 players and the Pens led with nine. They were followed by San Jose with eight players and Chicago, Detroit, The Rangers and Ottawa at six each.

In round three, 24 players made an appearance in at least one game. Pittsburgh led the pack with 10 skaters and they were followed by Chicago with 6.

In the hard fought Stanley Cup Final, Boston had three players and Chicago had seven who were NCAA alumni.

Follow the NCAA players in the post playoff media to enhance your college hockey research. Players will comment in interviews about their college days and this could be that extra piece of information that will help you make that team.
