San Jose Sharks star prospect Will Smith and Boston College are headed to the Frozen Four.

Smith notched an assist to add to his NCAA-leading 69 points, helping BC edge Quinnipiac 5-4 in OT.

The Golden Eagles will take on Michigan, while Macklin Celebrini’s Boston University will square off against Denver on Apr. 11. The National Championship is Apr. 13. All games will be hosted at Xcel Energy Center in Minnesota.

The big question for the San Jose Sharks at the Frozen Four? Will Smith go pro afterwards?
