    Hard to think of live events right now, but NCAA plans for the next few years announced.

    Shame no Chicago, but seems like decent enough options.

    Also interesting to see the hosting schools for three of them...

    Not bad choices.

    After 2012, everybody wanted to return to Tampa. St. Paul is a natural choice. St. Louis worked last time (even if the bad guys won), and Vegas, well, that might be the first one I attend as a neutral. Even if my alma mater doesn't make it, I can always go for a trip out there.

    St. Louis finally getting the hockey respect WE deserve. :hit:


    And stick taps to the Women's Frozen Four sites as well: Amsoil Arena in Duluth, Minn., in 2023; Whittemore Center Arena in Durham, N.H., in 2024; Ridder Arena in Minneapolis in 2025; and Pegula Ice Arena in State College, Pa. (AGAIN), in 2026.

    While I am not opposed to seeing more NCAA hockey programs, we saw this before with an ACHA school hosting the Frozen Four.

    Lindenwood would make a helluva lot of sense to jump up to varsity in men's hockey. And I say that as an Illini fan. If an announcement about that could be coupled with the St. Louis Frozen Four, that'd be ideal.

    Then again, I was half expecting Illinois to finally announce a move to varsity hockey when Chicago hosted a few years back as well, and since then we've only had rumor of an impending announcement after another, so what do I know?

    Hopefully we have a COVID vaccine by then.

    Navy hosted the 2009 Frozen Four in DC. My timeline is a little off, so I don't remember when the "Navy to NCAA" rumors were floating around, but ultimately, nothing came to fruition.
