The National Collegiate Hockey Conference has this news release Tuesday about some announcements Thursday:
Minneapolis, MN (Tuesday, March 5, 2013) — The National Collegiate Hockey Conference is aggressively taking several major steps as its inaugural season grows ever closer.
As the State of Hockey gets set to crown Minnesota’s champions in boys’ high school hockey, the NCHC and its member schools will be in Minneapolis on March 7 for a Hat Trick of announcements:
- Unveil the Conference logo, which will act as the NCHC’s visual stamp for years to come.
- Reveal details about its first-ever NCHC post-season tournament, which will be played at Target Center in downtown Minneapolis.
- Introduce the launch of the new Conference website.
Meanwhile, in neighboring St. Paul, the NCHC will have a booth at the Let’s Play Hockey Expo in downtown St. Paul, just steps away from where the Class AA and A boys’ tournaments are unfolding. This presence will give thousands of hockey fans the opportunity to get to know the NCHC and understand why the NCHC will arguably be the strongest college hockey conference in America.
