The National Collegiate Hockey Conference will host a media event that gives reporters a sneak peek behind the scenes of Target Center’s renovations in anticipation of the NCHC. The Frozen Faceoff is set for March 17–18 in Minneapolis.

“In its short history, the Frozen Faceoff has always showcased the best that college hockey has to offer,” says NCHC Commissioner Josh Fenton, pointing to the overall success the conference has enjoyed in over three years, including the first national championship by a member school, “and we are even more excited for the event this coming March with all the transformation that is taking place at Target Center.”

Members of the press as well as Priority Ticket Members will have the chance to observe the improvements within the Target Center. Including the Chairman’s Club, TCL Theater Boxes, LED lighting and an improved sound system. They will also be sampling the new and improved menu items.

The event will be held at Target Center on Wednesday, Feb. 22 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
