The semifinals and championship will be broadcast by CBS Sports Network.

UND and Denver are the only teams to have reached the Frozen Faceoff in all five years of the NCHC.

UND reached St. Paul by sweeping Omaha in a best-of-three series. The Fighting Hawks won the series opener 4-0 and won Game 2 on an overtime goal by Nick Jones.

This is the first year the Frozen Faceoff has been played in the Xcel Energy Center, home of the Minnesota Wild. The previous four years were played in the Target Center in Minneapolis.

The league moved the tournament after the Big Ten vacated the Xcel Energy Center in favor of playing its tournament at home sites.
