The event will take place at Brown’s recently renovated Meehan Auditorium in Providence, R.I. Semifinal games will be on Saturday, March 15, with the championship game on Sunday, March 16.

“We have a successful working relationship with Brown, having conducted four events in the city of Providence, and we are looking forward to returning in 2003,” said ECAC Commissioner Phil Buttafuoco. “The facility is first-class and will be a central location for college hockey fans from around the league to gather to watch our championship event.”

A total of eight teams will qualify for the ECAC playoffs and will be seeded based on regular-season standings. The format for the quarterfinals will be a best two-of-three series and will be played on the weekend of March 7-9 at the home rinks of the highest seeds. The winners of the quarterfinal games will advance to the championship at Brown.

The 2003 championship will mark the fifth year that Brown has hosted
the event.
