The NCAA Division I Men's Hockey West Regional is returning to the State of Hockey, NCAA officials announced today.
The University of Minnesota will once again team up with Xcel Energy Center to bring the 2014 West Regional to St. Paul on Saturday, March 29, and Sunday, March 30.
It will be the fifth time in the last six years that the Twin Cities will play host to college hockey's premier event.
