The North Star College Cup presented by TRIA Orthopaedic Center 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 Minnesota, UMD, Bemidji State and St. Cloud State. Minnesota State will not participate in the 2016 North Star College Cup.

Now in its fourth year, the North Star College Cup has provided plenty of excitement for fans of all five Division I college hockey programs in Minnesota as three different teams have won the event in its first three years - the University of Minnesota, Bemidji State and St. Cloud State.

The Gophers captured the inaugural title in 2014 in a dramatic shootout victory followed by the Beavers in 2015 after Michael Bitzer stopped 54 of 55 shots over the weekend to earn tournament MVP honors. St. Cloud State returns as the defending North Star College Cup champions after scoring 10 goals at the college hockey showcase in 2016.
