The men's hockey NCAA tournament is regularly stocked with Minnesota talent. This year's field features two teams from the state of hockey with a combined 38 Minnesotans on their rosters.

More than a dozen Minnesota products are scattered throughout the other 14 tournament teams.

Here are five Minnesotans to watch in this year's field:

Justin Kloos
College: Minnesota
Year/position: Sr., forward
High School: Lakeville South
The senior has past success in the NCAA tournament. He was the 2014 West Regional Most Outstanding Player as a freshman and played an important role in the Gophers' run to the national championship game. He is back in the tournament for a final time eyeing redemption after losing in the 2014 title game to Union. Four players from Lakeville South -- Kloos, Kyle Osterberg, Drew Brevig, John Wiitala -- are in this year's tournament.

Hunter Miska
College: Minnesota Duluth
Year/position: Fr., Goalie
High School: North Branch
Miska is a finalist for the Mike Richter Award honoring the nation's top goaltender. He has only four losses this season, never been swept, and owns a 2.23 goals-against average and .917 save percentage. He also has five shutouts. Miska could be the key to the Bulldogs' national title hopes.

Brock Boeser
College: North Dakota
Year/position: Soph., forward
High School: Burnsville
Boeser played an integral role in North Dakota's championship run a year ago and earned All-America honors as a freshman. His production has been down this season, but has proven he can perform at the highest levels.

Jake Oettinger
College: Boston University
Year/position: Fr., goalie
High School: Lakeville North
The freshman goalie is the star of Boston University's Top 10-rated team defense. Oettinger is allowing just 2.09 goals per game and owns a .927 save percentage. If he gets hot, the Terriers could surprise some teams in the tournament.

Tyler Sheehy
College: Minnesota
Year/position: Soph., forward
High School: Burnsville
The Gophers forward is a Hobey Baker Top 10 finalist and among college hockey's top scorers with 53 points (20 goals, 33 assists). He also owns a team-high 22-plus rating. If he can provide the consistent clutch goals the Gophers have lacked in recent tournaments, he could help lead the program back to the national title game.
