Penn State Hockey Announces Ticket Information For New Big Ten Tournament Format

With a new conference tournament format incoming, Penn State men’s hockey announced the ticket information on Tuesday morning for postseason play.

If Penn State finishes the season as the No. 2, 3, or 4 seed in the Big Ten, season ticket holders can secure their seats for up to five postseason games from now until February 9 through the online ticket portal. A “Pay As We Play” option is also available, which will only charge ticket holders if the Nittany Lions will definitely play at Pegula.

In years past, the Big Ten hosted all of its conference tournament games at an NHL rink at a neutral site. Now, the No. 2, 3, and 4 seeds in the conference will host a best-of-three quarterfinal at their respective home rinks, hosting the No. 7, 6, and 5 seeds in the conference, respectively. The top seed will receive a first-round bye and home-ice advantage throughout the tournament.

Currently, Penn State sits at No. 3 in the Big Ten, which would set up a three-game quarterfinal with No. 6 Michigan in Hockey Valley if the season ended today. Penn State has gained national notoriety for its raucous atmospheres, so hosting playoff hockey at Pegula Ice Arena could create one of the best atmospheres in the rink’s history.

For now, Penn State has a huge series against Ohio State — one of two teams ahead of the Nittany Lions in the Big Ten standings — to focus on. The puck drops at 7:30 p.m. Friday night, followed by a 7 p.m. start Saturday.
