ME loses bid to host 2019 NCAA hockey regional”

In Division I women's hockey, the NCAA announced the 2018 Frozen Four will be played at Ridder Arena in Minneapolis, Minn.

On the men's side, the NCAA announced the Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Connecticut as one of the 2018 regional sites for the Division I Men's Ice Hockey Championship.

Penn State has been selected to host at least nine NCAA championship events over the next five years, including the 2022 women's Frozen Four and both the 2018 and 2019 men's hockey regional, the university announced Tuesday afternoon. It is the eighth time UNH has served as a regional host in Manchester dating back to 2004.

"The entire Hockey East family is thrilled to once again be hosting the Frozen Four with our friends from TD Garden", said Hockey East Commissioner Joe Bertagna in a statement.

He noted that local fans have been very supportive of hockey in the Lehigh Valley and he has no reason to believe that while different, these games will also draw in big crowds. The Midwest Regional will be hosted by PPL Center in Allentown, Pa., and the West Regional is slated for Premier Center, Sioux Falls, S.D.

Unusually, the Dual card runs its memory at just 7 GT/s like an RX 570 instead of the typical 8 GT/s for a fully-enabled RX 580. The RX 560 is a 1024:64:16 design with a base clock of 1175MHz compared with the RX 460's 1090MHz, for a gain of 8 percent.

Four NCAA teams will take place in the Regional each year with next year's victor advancing to the Frozen Four in St. Paul, Minn. and the 2019 victor moving on to the Frozen Four in Buffalo, N.Y.

"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.

Penn State will host the National Collegiate Fencing Championships on March 25-28, 2021 in the Multi-Sport Facility.

While he said it's too early to speculate on ticket sales or how many people the games would draw to the region, Gunnar Fox, general manager of PPL Center, said it would likely be comparable to the crowds that January's American Hockey League Classic brought in. Rec Hall will host a National Collegiate Women's Gymnastics Regional in 2018 and 2020. The last time UNH hosted a regional was in 2005.
