Goal Gophers is reporting that the National Collegiate Hockey Conference and the Target Center have scheduled a press conference for the main lobby of the arena at 12:30 p.m. Mountain on Monday.
According to Gophers beat writer Roman Augustovitz, here are the folks expected to attend: Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak; NCHC Commissioner Jim Scherr; Target Center Vice President and General Manager Steve Mattson; Minnesota-Duluth Athletic Director Bob Nielsen; North Dakota Athletic Director Brian Faison; Representatives from some of the other member institutions in the new conference: Colorado College, Denver, Miami, Nebraska Omaha, St. Cloud State and Western Michigan.
There will be a live video stream of the event on the Internet at nchcmedia.ngin.com.
NCHC commissioner Jim Scherr said last month that a site for the conference tournament was “very, very close to having an agreement.”
The Big Ten Conference men’s hockey tournament will alternate between Xcel Energy Center (2014 and 2016) and Detroit (2015 and 2017) for at least four seasons.
