NCHC to Keep Playoff Format the Same

May 2, 2014 Updated May 2, 2014 at 1:38 PM CST

(NNCNOW.com) --- The National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) has decided to keep the playoff tournament format the same with all eight teams playing in a best-of-three first round series with the four winners then advancing; it was announced over the weekend.

At the NCHC meetings in Florida, commissioner Josh Fenton was pleased with the league's first year success and said the Frozen Faceoff will only continue to improve as more of the planned $100 million in renovations are phased in at the Target Center.

The league's voters (athletic directors, coaches, and faculty representatives) kept the playoff format after weighing options from Fenton.
