The collegiate ranks take over when the NCHC Frozen Faceoff returns to Xcel Energy Center March 22-23.

 

The dates of the tournaments are as follows:

During this time, 43 hockey games and hundreds of wrestling matches will be decided at Xcel Energy Center by athletes ranging from high school to professional.
