ECAC Playoff TicketsThe ECAC is one of six conferences in Division I NCAA hockey. There are 12 member schools in the ECAC. There are three rounds in the ECAC tournament. All twelve teams in the conference make it to the ECAC tournament. The top four seeded teams sit out the first round and are automatically advanced to the second round. The first and second rounds are played in a best-of-three-series format. The finals are decided over two days in late March in Lake Placid, NY. The ECAC playoffs are hotly contested every year. Winning the conference championship means a guaranteed berth in the regional round of the playoffs. The ECAC series represents the first hurdle on the way to the Frozen Four, where the NCAA Division I champion is decided. These players are all fierce competitors. Some have already been drafted into the NHL, especially at schools like Harvard and Clarkson. A great place to find tickets to this event is at StubHub.

Where are the ECAC playoffs played?The answer depends on the round. The first and second rounds of the ECAC playoffs are played in a series format on the campuses of the schools involved. The finals are held in a centralized location. In 2019 and 2020, the finals were scheduled at Lake Placid, NY.
What are some of the biggest rivalries in the ECAC?The ECAC is home to some of the oldest and most-storied hockey rivalries in the NCAA. Harvard's rivalry with Cornell dates until at least the 1960s. Over the years, these schools have fielded top-flight teams featuring future NHL players like Ken Dryden and Don Sweeney. The rivalry really caught fire after Cornell swept Harvard in the ECAC playoffs in 1990. Yale also has a notable rivalry with Quinnipiac. Just eight miles separate these schools. In contrast to Yale's long history of Division I hockey, Quinnipiac has only really been a contender for about 20 years. The rivalry has been nicknamed the "War on Whitney Avenue" and dates back to 2005, when Yale and Quinnipiac played for the first time. Local crowds really enjoy these evenly matched games.
Who are some of the most notable players in the ECAC playoffs?The ECAC features some of the most dynamic players in the NCAA. Players to watch during the ECAC playoffs include Curtis Hall from Yale and Nick Abruzzese of Harvard. Hall is a forward known for his scoring touch. He was drafted by the Boston Bruins as a fourth-round pick. Like Hall, Abruzzese is a 4th-round NHL draft pick. He's also a prolific scorer. Over the years, many world-class hockey players have taken part in the ECAC playoffs. In 1967, Cornell took home its first NCAA Championship after being backstopped by Ken Dryden, who went on to become a legendary goaltender for the Montreal Canadiens. In 1989, the Harvard Crimson took the NCAA Championship with help from Ted Donato, who went on to play for the Boston Bruins. Donato has come full-circle and is now the head coach of men's hockey at Harvard.
What is the ECAC playoff schedule?The ECAC playoffs get started just a few days after the end of the regular season. The three rounds of the playoffs take place over three weekends in March. While the finals schedule is announced well ahead of time, the first and second rounds depend on standings. Those rounds are played at the home arenas of the teams involved, so the schedules are pending until the teams are announced.
What events are similar to the ECAC Playoffs?The ECAC playoffs have a lot in common with other conference showdowns in the NCAA, such as the Big 10 playoffs. They're also the prelude to the similarly fast-paced Northeast Regionals for some of these teams. For example, in 2019 the ECAC's Harvard faced off against Hockey East's University of Massachusetts at the Northeast Regionals.
