MINNEAPOLIS — For the second consecutive year, USCHO.com is sponsoring a Town Meeting to entertain and inform college hockey fans during the festivities at the NCAA Frozen Four. This year’s USCHO.com Town Meeting topic is “The State of College Hockey,” and the panel will include the commissioners from all six Division I hockey leagues.
The Town Meeting takes place this year at 11:15 a.m. (CST) on Friday, April 5, 2002 at the Touchstone Energy Place at the Rivercentre, just prior to the presentation of the Hockey Humanitarian Award and the Hobey Baker Award.
The format will be the same as last year, as USCHO.com’s general manager Jayson Moy will preside over a question and answer session where fans will be able to interact directly with the six Division I commissioners: Tom Anastos of the CCHA; R.H. “Bob” Peters of the CHA; Steve Hagwell of the ECAC; Joe Bertagna of Hockey East; Richard Ensor of the MAAC; and Bruce McLeod of the WCHA.
“Our goal is to bring the fans closer to the world of college hockey,” said Moy. “Last year’s event was a big success, and I expect this year will be even better.”
For fans not able to attend the Frozen Four, the Town Meeting will once again be simulcast live via the Internet at www.uscho.com. In addition, returning for the second year, is USCHO’s exclusive pre-game show coverage of the Frozen Four. Tune in on-line 90 minutes prior to each semifinal, and two hours prior to the final, to hear in-depth analysis and interviews about the games and more.
The first annual USCHO.com Town Meeting was held last year, at the Frozen Four in Albany, New York. The event was attended by hundreds of fans, and featured the members of the NCAA Division I Ice Hockey Selection Committee. Highlights and pictures from this event can be found at: USCHO.com.
