If it’s the holidays, it can only mean on thing in the college hockey world — a plethora of tournaments. This year is no different as there are nine different tournaments this season.
Throughout the weekend some of the locales are college hockey hotspots and some are locales that are not used to seeing college hockey.
Nonetheless, it should be a wild weekend of hockey with some great matchups amongst the Top 20 teams in the nation.
It’s a battle for trophies and conference bragging rights, so just click on the appropriate link to take you to a capsule preview of that tournament.
