The North Star College Cup presented by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota features four of Minnesota’s five Division I men’s hockey programs. The changing landscape of college hockey provided the impetus for non-conference rivalries between the five programs, and the North Star College Cup ensures those rivalries will remain intact.

The University of Minnesota is the event’s permanent host. This year’s tournament features the University of Minnesota, University of Minnesota Duluth, Bemidji State University and Minnesota State Mankato. St. Cloud State University will not participate in the 2015 North Star College Cup.

In last season's inaugural tournament, Minnesota and Minnesota-Duluth skated to a 4-4 tie in the championship game with the Golden Gophers claiming the title in a shootout. It was the second-straight overtime contest for the Bulldogs as they defeated Minnesota State, 5-4, in the semifinals. Minnesota advanced to the title game with a 4-1 victory over St. Cloud State. Gopher goaltender Adam Wilcox was named the tournament's most valuable player, while Minnesota State's Jean-Paul Lafontaine led all players with five points in two games.
