Given the sellout or near sellout crowds of recent years, the league highly recommends that fans purchase their tickets
in advance to avoid missing one of college hockey's premier conference tournaments. The winner of the tournament
will earn an automatic berth into the 64th annual NCAA Championships. Advance ticket sales have been steady the past
couple of seasons, particularly in December, when college hockey fans purchase them as gifts around the holidays.
"We expect heavy sales on December 4th, after an exciting tournament last year," said Hockey East commissioner
Joe Bertagna. "This year's tournament will certainly be an interesting one, as the league standings are tight at this point
in the season."
Boston College won its league-record ninth Hockey East Tournament Title last season with a thrilling 7-6 overtime win
against Maine at the TD Garden on March 20, 2010. The Eagles have won four of the last six Hockey East Championship
Tournaments since 2005.
The Hockey East Association is a 10-team, Division-I college hockey conference, with offices based in Wakefield, Mass.
Founded in 1983, the league has won seven NCAA championships in the past 18 years. The league also sponsors an
eight-team women's league which began play in 2002-03.
