NCAA hockey regional to return in 2019

The first weekend of the NCAA hockey tournament is held at four off-campus locations and a nearby school is selected to be the host of the tournament.

The University of New Hampshire will host the 2019 NCAA men's Division I ice hockey Northeast Regional at SNHU Arena in Manchester, the NCAA announced on Tuesday.

Over the past four tournaments (since 2014) nine different cities have hosted an NCAA Men's Ice Hockey Regional including and Cincinnati, Ohio (three times), Providence, R.I.

The national sports spotlight will once again shine on downtown Allentown and the Greater Lehigh Valley when the PPL Center hosts the 2018 and 2019 NCAA Division 1 Men's Ice Hockey Regionals.

Tillerson fears an "unchecked Iran" will become like North Korea
Never, ever, ever in my life have I seen any transaction so incompetently negotiated as our deal with Iran. Still, the administration has sought since its first days in office to ratchet up pressure on Iran.

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.

The Frozen Four will return to the hotbed of college hockey. There had been talk of Portland, Maine hosting a regional at the recently-renovated Cross Insurance Arena, but it won't happen in this cycle. The 2018 and 2021 National Collegiate Fencing Championships will also be at Penn State. The city bid for the hosting rights earlier this year. "The last time we hosted in 2009 it was a big hit".

ME has been shut out in its bid to host NCAA men's hockey tournament games at Portland's Cross Insurance Arena in 2019. 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.

The bad news, Wisconsin was the last midwest regional host to make the tournament back in 2008. (The men's regionals are routinely held at off-campus facilities.) The Lehigh Valley rink is almost a three-hour drive from Pegula Ice Arena, but that's still considerably closer than the last Midwest Regional that was held in Cincinnati (seven-hour drive).
