Quinnipiac to host 2019 Women's Frozen Four

Quinnipiac to host 2019 Women's Frozen Four

The NCAA has selected host sites for 84 of its 90 championships through 2022, leaving several other potential openings.

Four New England cities were among the sites announced by the NCAA on Tuesday for Division I men's hockey regionals in 2018 and 2019. "We are thrilled to partner with Penn State to host the 2018 and 2019 NCAA Division I Men's Ice Hockey Regionals at PPL Center".

The Western regionals are a bit more interesting, as Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Allentown, Pennsylvania will each be first-time hosts in 2018.

The University of Pittsburgh was also chosen to host several championship events that Penn State faithful might be interested in - including the men's hockey Frozen Four in 2021, the wrestling national championships in 2019 and the women's volleyball national title game in 2019.

Hackers Target Snapchat After CEO Calls India 'Poor Country'
Hashtags like #BoycottSnapchat and #Uninstall Snapchat have also started trending on Facebook and Twitter. "I don't want to expand into poor countries like India and Spain", Spiegel is alleged to have said.

The 2018 Frozen Four (April 5-7), as previously announced, will be staged at Xcel Energy Center, St. Paul, Minn. The 2021 NCAA Men's Frozen Four at PPG Paints Arena will take place April 8 and 10, 2021. "The PPL Center will provide a fun tournament atmosphere for the NCAA Men's Hockey regionals in Allentown".

"Penn State prides itself on providing exceptional championship experiences for student-athletes", said Assistant AD Michael Cross, who oversees the men's and women's hockey programs. "It's an honor to have those efforts recognized with successful bids to host NCAA Championship events in our two newest sports and in two new, state-of-the-art facilities".

Functionally nothing changes for Penn State as the host team, but the Nittany Lions would play in Allentown if they were to make the postseason. ME hasn't hosted an NCAA hockey tournament game since the regional format was introduced in 1992. The last time the Bobcats hosted the Frozen Four, the team went 23-6-9 before falling to No. 2 Clarkson, 6-0, in the ECAC semifinals. In 2018, the East Regional will be held at DCU Center in Worcester, Mass., and the Northeast Regional is set for Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Conn.
