Ice Breaker Tourney Moves to Wisconsin

The new season-opening Ice Breaker Cup tournament has undergone a change of venue and taken on a new name and corporate sponsor.

The tournament is now the Team Cheerios Ice Breaker Invitational, and will be played at Dane County Coliseum in Madison, Wis., home of the host Wisconsin Badgers. Originally, the tournament was to be played at the Rosemont Horizon, outside of Chicago.

Matchups remain the same for this season’s inaugural incarnation of the tournament, featuring one team from each major Division I conference. On Friday, Oct. 10, Michigan State (CCHA) takes on Boston University (Hockey East), followed by Clarkson (ECAC) against Wisconsin (WCHA). The consolation and championship games will take place the next day. Tickets are available through the Wisconsin Athletic Ticket Office.

The Ice Breaker Invitational is sponsored by the WCHA, the American Hockey Coaches Association and the University of Wisconsin.
