Spread the love

The Hockey East Championship is the championship series of the Ice Hockey School in Boston, Massachusetts. The winner of the tournament becomes the champion of the league for the year. The tournament runs for ten games with the winner being determined by which team has the most points at the end of the season.

The tournament starts with four teams competing for the title. Then, after a division is determined, the top two teams in each division compete against each other in a play-off series to decide the final champion. Below we discuss when the 2018 iteration of the tournament will begin, as well as what you should know about it.

The Regular Season Begins

Like most professional sports leagues, the hockey season in the NCAA starts in the fall and goes through the winter. However, unlike most leagues, the NCAA requires its member schools to remain in the same location. This makes it difficult for Ice Hockey School to conduct a championship series in the winter. It also means the regular season for the Ice Hockey School starts in the summer.

The first game of the summer is traditionally held at the beginning of the month of July and is called the Massachusetts Cup. Nine teams, including some of the top universities in the country, take the ice in a tournament that serves as the first taste of the upcoming season. The tournament is considered the unofficial start of the season, and teams begin practicing as early as mid-June. The cup is a good opportunity for fans to see top-notch student-athletes compete in a different setting than they are accustomed to. Some of the games are also broadcast on national television.

The Regular Season Ends

Once the regular season has ended, the top two teams in each division enter a play-off series to determine the league champion. The first round of the playoffs is typically held in a best-of-three format, with each game being a maximum of two-hours long. The winning team moves on to the next round, and the process continues until we have a championship game. The tournament has yet to determine a definite schedule, but it is expected that the championship game will be played either in January or February.

The regular season for the Ice Hockey School ends in early to mid-October. During this time, teams will have played between 30-and-40 games. The season ends with a celebration known as the Homecoming Game. Members of the Ice Hockey School community, student-athletes, and their families come together to commemorate the end of the season and give thanks to those who helped make the season possible.

Ticket Information

Tickets for the Massachusetts Cup and the playoff games are on sale now. There is a wide range of prices, from $20 for students and staff to $60 for reserved seating.

Phone numbers for the school are listed below.

Who’s Playing?

The 2018 Massachusetts Cup is expected to feature nine teams, including Harvard, Boston University (BU), Northeastern, and others. Teams will play four games, with the top team from each division meeting in the championship game. The format is similar to that of last year’s tournament, but there are a few changes. First, the inclusion of women’s hockey as an official NCAA sport has led to an increase in the number of participating teams. Second, the addition of a travel grant means that some teams could be playing on a school-sponsored basis.

As always, fans will have the opportunity to follow the action via live stream. The live stream for the 2018 tournament will be available through the UStream app or the websites of the Big Ten Network, the conference’s affiliated channel, and the Ice Hockey School itself.

When Is The Ice Hockey School Championship?

The championship is traditionally held a little after the end of the regular season, which is in the winter. However, as previously stated, the tournament takes place in the summer. The exact date and time of the 2018 tournament have yet to be determined, but it is expected to be in late January or early February.

The winner of the Ice Hockey School Championship game becomes the champion of the league for the year. The tournament is considered the culmination of the school’s summer season, and it is also a chance for students to show off their talent and sportsmanship in the midst of the school year. Many people on campus have already begun to look forward to this exciting event, and it’s not yet halfway through the summer.
