NCAA Hockey Tournament
The NCAA Men's College Hockey Tournament has a long and storied history that goes all the way back to 1948. Over the decades, the format has evolved to its present state, which is 16 teams from the five Division I conferences who are then divided up into 4 regions consisting of 4 teams. The single elimination tournament has grown into one of the most exciting college sporting events of the year. The top seed in each of the four regions is assigned to the arena closest to their campus to provide them with the best home ice advantage.
While the Frozen Four now rotates among different venues in different cities now, the first 10 NCAA Men's Hockey Tournaments were all held at Colorado Springs' Broadmoor Ice Palace.
