World-Herald Sports Omaha World-Herald

The Target Center in Minneapolis will host the National Collegiate Hockey Conference tournament for five years, beginning in 2014, the conference’s debut season.

The winners of the conference quarterfinals, which will be played on the home ice of the top four regular-season finishers in the eight-team league, will qualify to come to Minneapolis for the NCHC Championship at Target Center.

CBS Sports Network, the Conference’s national television partner, will televise the tournament’s two semifinal games and the championship game. A third-place game also will be played at Target Center. The dates and times for the games of the NCHC Championship at Target Center will be announced at a later date.
