The National Collegiate Hockey Conference will hold its fourth annual conference championship, the 2017 NCHC Frozen Faceoff, at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minn. The winners of the conference quarterfinals, best-of-three series on campus sites, will meet in the NCHC semifinals on Friday, March 17 with the third-place and championship games on Saturday, March 18.

All-session tickets to the 2017 NCHC Frozen Faceoff are now on sale to the general public and may be purchased here.  All-session tickets are available at various price points depending on seat location (seating chart). For premium seats in the middle sections of the lower bowl (sections 109-113 and 129-133), all-session tickets remain $135 per person. For all other lower bowl seats and upper level sections 208-214 and 228-234 (rows A-H), tickets have been lowered to $120.
