Xcel Energy Center Awarded 2012 Hockey Regionals
Although the Xcel Energy Center will host the 2011 NCAA Men's College Hockey Frozen Four in April, it was announced this week that the Xcel Energy Center will also be hosting the West Regional semifinals for the NCAA Tournament in March of 2012. It will be the 4th consecutive year that the Twin Cities will be the host of a Men's college hockey NCAA tournament event. The last time the Xcel Energy Center hosted the Frozen Four, the Minnesota Gophers won the tournament in 2002. Go Gophers!
