2021 Big Ten Men’s Hockey Tournament Set To Begin March 14
Update, Thursday, February 25: The 2021 Big Ten Men’s Hockey Tournament has been moved up to March 14-16, the conference announced Thursday.
The tournament will still be played at the Compton Family Ice Arena on Notre Dame’s campus, and will welcome the same seven teams.
“The decision to change the dates of the tournament was made in order to ease compression between the regular season and postseason tournaments in the interest of the health and safety of student-athletes, coaches and officials,” the Big Ten stated.
Original Story: The 2021 Big Ten Men’s Hockey Tournament will officially stretch from March 18 to 20, the conference announced Tuesday afternoon.
Notre Dame will host the tournament at Compton Family Ice Arena in Notre Dame, Indiana.
The tournament will consist of six single-elimination games, with three on Thursday, March 18, two on Friday, March 19, and the championship game on Saturday, March 20. With all seven teams participating, the regular-season champion will receive a bye heading into the first round.
Penn State finished its 2019-20 season as the Big Ten regular-season champion before the 2020 Big Ten Hockey Tournament was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Nittany Lions will face Notre Dame this weekend at Pegula Ice Arena, hoping to finally boast a winning record for the first time this season.
Further details regarding the tournament, including game times and TV broadcasts, will be announced at a later date.
