1st ever Frozen Faceoff at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, moving from it's first 4 years at Target Center (2014-2017)

Previous Champs: Denver (2014) Miami (2015) SCSU (2016) UMD (2017)
Scores 2014-Denver 4 Miami 3 2015- Miami 3 SCSU 2 2016- SCSU 3 UMD 1 2017- UMD 4 North Dakota 3

On Thursday, March 15, the eve of the Frozen Faceoff, fans will have the opportunity to skate on the same ice that will host the Frozen Faceoff and on which the Minnesota Wild skate, during the NCHC Fan Skate at Xcel Energy Center.

One more for all of you faceoff nerds out there (you know who you are): of the top seven faceoff specialists in the NCHC, six of them play for North Dakota or St. Cloud State (three each), and eight of the league's top 15.

Have four tickets for sale for Friday only.

Section 123, row 8, seats 1-4. This is directly behind one goal on the zamboni entrance. Because of that, there are only 4 seats in this row, so you and your compatriots would have the entire row to yourselves.

Each ticket comes out to $56.05 with Ticketmaster's mark up or just shy of $225 for the set.

I'd let them go below face value, would ask $150 for all four. I would also consider breaking them up into sets of two. PM/reply me if interested.

It's Frozen Faceoff time! :)
This is gonna be an AWESOME weekend of hockey

Round 5 with NoDak today, and it should be a helluva game; all 4 games thus far have been tight so no reason to expect any difference today.

We'll be getting everything they have and then some, as they are squarely on the bubble and facing the prospect of losing their NCAA Streak; it's gonna take everything the guys have to make the Finals this year, so I'm hoping they don't get too wrapped up in the narrative of ending UND's season like they've done ours in the past as that could give UND the advantage of clarity.

Should be a fantastic game!
