NCHC Championship TicketsThe NCHC Championship is a postseason college hockey tournament that takes place after the end of the regular season schedule to determine the conference tournament winner. The Target Center served as the host for the first several years, but the conference switched to the Xcel Energy Center for the 2018 tournament. The National Collegiate Hockey Conference or NCHC for short is one of the premier college hockey leagues in the country. Comprised of teams from throughout the Midwest, the NCHC began playing in 2013 after a lengthy period of conference realignment. When several teams from the WCHA and the now defunct CCHA departed for the Big Ten, some of the remaining members consolidated into a new hockey powerhouse. The conference is the home to numerous national championships and top prospects who go on to play in professional leagues, including the NHL. If you want to catch some of the best players and teams in the conference, then you can purchase NCHC Championship tickets at StubHub, a leading source for live events.
Who participates in the NCHC Championship tournament?All eight teams from the conference participate in the tournament, regardless of their regular season record. The eight current members of the NCHC are the Colorado College Tigers, the University of Denver Pioneers, the Miami University Red Hawks, the University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs, the University of Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks, the University of North Dakota Fighting Hawks, the St. Cloud State University Huskies and the Western Michigan University Broncos.
What is the format of the NCHC Championship games?The NCHC Tournament opens up with a round of best-of-three quarterfinals series. Each series is hosted by the higher seed as determined by regular season conference standings. Tiebreakers come into play for teams that have the same points total. The first team to win two games in the series will advance to the next round of the tournament, which involves a single-elimination semifinals matchup at a neutral site location. Teams are reseeded for the semifinals. The two winners advance to a championship game known as the Frozen Faceoff. The losers of the semifinals will match up in a third-place game. With the exception of the third-place game, which can end in a tie, all games tied at the end of regulation will continue with 20-minute sudden-death periods until someone scores.
When does the NCHC Championship take place?The 2020 NCHC Championship schedule begins with the quarterfinals series between March 13 and 15 at the campus location of the higher seed. This is followed by the semifinals games on Friday, March 20, and the finals and third-place game on Saturday, the 21st.
Who was the winner of the previous tournament?Two seed Minnesota-Duluth was the winner of the 2019 NCHC Tournament with a 3-2 win over top seed St. Cloud State in double overtime. Mikey Anderson and Billy Exell scored for Minnesota-Duluth in regulation. Nick Swaney clinched the victory with a goal in the second overtime. It was the team’s second conference tournament win in three years. Minnesota-Duluth went on to win the national title game over Massachusetts by a score of 3-0 for its second straight championship and the fourth straight for an NCHC team.
How large is the venue?The Xcel Energy Center has a seating capacity of approximately 18,000 people for hockey games. Seating areas include the lower level, the upper level and various premium seating options. The arena is the home of the Minnesota Wild of the NHL.
What is the reward for winning the tournament?The winner of the championship game receives the NCHC Frozen Faceoff trophy and an automatic berth into the 16-team NCAA Tournament regardless of the team’s regular season record. This gives every team the impetus to compete for the championship. However, it can also lead to situations in which the winner of the conference tournament diverges from the regular season conference champion. When this happens, the regular season champion is overwhelmingly likely to receive an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament.
