Four teams take to the ice at the Joe Louis Arena for the ‘College Hockey in the D’ championship March 16-17, 2012

The Red Wings are hot. But this weekend, Hockeytown gets fired up over some different players during the Central Collegiate Hockey Association Tournament, making its way to the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit taking place on March 16-17, 2012.

Four teams have duked it out to land a spot in the championship round, but only one can win. So who will it be? The Mitten State boasts two teams playing in CCHA Tournament this year – Western Michigan and the University of Michigan. Kicking off the competition, Western combats Miami, while Michigan takes on Bowling Green University.

You and your family can watch the ice-slinging, puck-flying action as it unfolds over two high-throttle, fun-packed days. Throughout the championship, 11 fans will win one-of-a-kind autographed jersey combinations from CCHA alumni – all of whom are now in the NHL.

Then, on Saturday, March 17, the teams who have won the semifinal games advance on to compete in the third place game at 3:35 p.m. and the final game at 7:35 p.m.
