The league has consistently remained the strongest Division I conference from top to bottom, encompassing 10 elite Division I hockey programs. The Eagles of Boston College won their unprecedented 11th Hockey East Championship in March of 2012 and have dominated the league, winning five of the last six Hockey East Tournament titles. BC, Boston University, Maine and UMass-Lowell all qualified for the NCAA Tournament in March, marking the fourth straight year the league has placed at least three teams in the NCAA's. The league, along with the Boston Red Sox hosted a second Frozen Fenway doubleheader on January 7, 2012 at Fenway Park in Boston, as the University of Massachusetts squared off against the University of Vermont and the University of Maine skated against the University of New Hampshire in front of another sellout ballpark of 38,456 fans. Boston College and Boston University skated in front of 38,472 fans in the first Frozen Fenway event on January 8, 2010. Hockey East will once again enjoy a rich television package on a national and regional basis with NBC Sports Network, CBS Sports Network and New England Sports Network (NESN) televising over 30 games in the upcoming season. Hockey East has continued a steady rise to prominence since its founding charter on July 11, 1983, when the possibility of an apparent Ivy League departure threatened the ECAC. In response, the athletics directors from Boston College, Boston University, New Hampshire, Northeastern and Providence unveiled a new Division I men's ice hockey conference. Together, Bill Flynn of Boston College, John Simpson of Boston University, Andy Mooradian of New Hampshire, Joe Zabilski of Northeastern and Lou Lamoriello of Providence launched Hockey East. Lamoriello assumed the role of the league's first commissioner. Later that summer, the Board of Directors added the University of Maine and the University of Lowell (now UMass Lowell). Official conference competition of the seven-team league began with the 1984-85 season, and expansion brought the league to nine teams with the additions of Merrimack College (1989) and the University of Massachusetts (1993). The entry of the University of Vermont for the 2005-06 season brought the conference membership to 10 teams, while the University of Notre Dame was accepted as the league's 11th member on October 5, 2011 and will begin play starting in 2013-14 and most recently the University of Connecticut is the conference's 12th program, which was announced on June 21, 2012. Since its inception, Hockey East has set new competitive standards for college hockey success, annually compiling an impressive collective winning percentage against non-conference opponents, including a record .705 during the 2002-03 season and a .669 win percentage during the 25th anniversary season of 2008-09. Over the last 19 years, Hockey East has cemented itself as the nation's elite college hockey league, having earned 29 of the 74 berths in the NCAA Frozen Four and boasting eight NCAA title winners: the University of Maine in 1993 and 1999, Boston University in 1995, Boston College in 2001 and 2008, Boston University in 2009 and the Eagles again most recently in 2010 and 2012. Three of the four Frozen Four participants in 1999 came from the Hockey East ranks, and in 2007, both Boston College and the University of Maine made it to the semifinal round in St. Louis, after five squads (including Boston University, Massachusetts and New Hampshire) were selected for the 16-team NCAA field. Hockey East sent three teams to the NCAA Tournament in 2012, marking eight times in the last nine seasons that league teams have accomplished that feat. Hockey East has proven to be an equally strong presence off the ice and in the classroom. League athletes continue to demonstrate their commitment to overall excellence, as the Hockey East All-Academic Team honored a leaguerecord 100 student-athletes for outstanding academic achievement during the 2011-2012 academic year. Providence senior forward Andy Balysky, Merrimack senior forward Ryan Flanigan and Northeastern senior forward Mike McLaughlin shared the distinction as Hockey East Top-Scholar Athletes, as the trio earned perfect 4.0 GPA's for the season. The league also honored five student-athletes that received "Distinguished Scholar" status. Those earning "Distinguished Scholar" status achieved a 3.0 or better in each semester over four varsity seasons. Vermont senior forward Matt Marshall and Boston University defenseman Ryan Ruikka were honored as "Distinguised Scholars", along with Balysky, Flanigan and McLaughlin. Hockey East athletes also make a positive impact on many community service programs across the region, volunteering with youth hockey associations and community service organizations. Six Hockey East athletes have received the prestigious Hockey Humanitarian Award, three from each from the men's league and women's, and seven others have been finalists for the award. Boston College's Brooks Dyroff won the 2011 Hockey Humanitarian Award, marking the league's sixth honoree in as many years, for his work with his not-for-profit organization called CEO 4 Teens. Maine's Spencer Abbott and BC's Brian Dumoulin were named Hobey Baker finalists, while the league boasted four All-Americans last season. However, it is the quality of its individual players as leading athletes that most sets Hockey East apart from the rest. More than 40 Hockey East alums were regulars on NHL rosters in 2011-2012. In total, 40 active Hockey East players have been selected in the NHL Entry Draft. The league boasts 35 all-time first round picks. Boston University's 2012-13 roster boasts a leaguehigh 10 NHL draft picks, while cross-town rival Boston College has six players selected. A total of 534 Hockey East student-athletes have been selected in the NHL Entry Draft in the 28-year history of the league, which included 12 draftees in the 2012 Entry Draft. The reach of Hockey East continues to grow as new state-of-the-art facilities are constructed, increasing capacities and amenities for college hockey fans. And the fans have responded with over a million spectators came out to watch Hockey East teams during the 2011-12 season for the seventh consecutive season. www.HockeyEastOnline.com www.HockeyEastOnline.com Athletic Dept./Rink Address: Conte Forum, 140 Commonwealth Ave. Chestnut Hill, MA 02467 Athletics Director - TBA (617) 552-4680 Head Coach - Jerry York (617) 552-3028 Media Relations - Tim Clark (617) 552-8841 email@example.com BOSTON COLLEGE BCEagles.com Athletic Dept.

The title honors Lou Lamoriello, the first commissioner of Hockey East and a leader in the formation of the conference. The league commissioned the creation of a permanent trophy in 1998, and it was delivered in time for the 1999 championship. Most recently, Lamoriello was announced as a member of the `09 Hockey Hall of Fame induction class, in the builders category, for his contrbutions to the sport of ice hockey. The induction ceremony took place on November 9 in Toronto, Ont. Lamoriello served as the Providence College head coach for 15 seasons (196883), guiding the Friars to an overall record of 248-179-13, a winning percentage of .580. He led the Friars to a 33-10-0 mark in the 1982-83 campaign, the best in the nation that year. Providence also reached the Frozen Four that season for the first time since 1964. Lamoriello resigned as coach following that season to devote more time to his role as the Providence athletic director, a post to which he was appointed in July of 1982. With the athletics directors from Boston College, Boston University, New Hampshire and Northeastern, Lamoriello formed the Hockey East Association in July of 1983. He was the driving force in the historymaking interlocking schedule agreement with the Western Collegiate Hockey Association and in the first-ever college hockey television package. A native of Johnston, R.I., Lamoriello attended LaSalle Academy and graduated from Providence College in 1963. As an undergraduate, Lamoriello lettered in baseball and hockey, serving as captain for each team during his senior year. He was inducted into the Providence College Athletic Hall of Fame in 1980. Lamoriello resigned as commissioner of Hockey East and as Providence College Athletic Director on April 30, 1987, to take the position of President and General Manager of the National Hockey League's New Jersey Devils. Lamoriello continued to succeed in the NHL as the Devils have won the Stanley Cup three times during his tenure, most recently in 2003. Five former Hockey East players -- Kevin Dean (UNH), Brian Gionta (BC), Bill Guerin (BC), Jay Pandolfo (BU) and Chris Terreri (PC), have won at least one Cup each under Lamoriello's watch. Lamoriello has won on the international level as well. He organized the Team USA entry in both the 1996 World Cup of Hockey and the 1998 Winter Olympics as the General Manager of each team. The former, paced by Hockey East alumni Brian Leetch (BC), Keith Tkachuk (BU) and Tony Amonte (BU) beat Canada in the finals, two games to one, to win the inaugural World Cup. 2013 HOCKEY EAST TOURNAMENT Hockey East quarterfinal action in 2013 will again be a best-of-three format with the four highest seeds hosting series at their respective campus sites. As the regular season champion, the No. 1 seed will host No. 8. No. 2 will host No. 7, No. 3 will host No. 6, and No. 4 will host No. 5. The quarterfinals will be played from Friday, March 15, through Sunday, March 16. Tickets for these games will be available through the eight participating institutions.

Semifinalists will face-off at the Garden on the evening of Friday, March 22, with the winners playing for the Lamoriello Trophy the following night, March 23.

The Frozen Four this year will be held at the Consol Energy Center on April 11 & 13 in Pittsburgh, Pa. TD GARDEN The Hockey East Championships were first held at the Providence Civic Center following the inaugural season of 1984-85. After several successful showings at the original Boston Garden, the tournament moved with its sister events to the FleetCenter, the Garden's successor. The FleetCenter was re-christened as the TD Garden in the summer of 2005. The building has become a recognized leader in hosting college hockey events, having set attendance records for the NCAA Frozen Four in 1998, and boasting progressively larger crowds for the Beanpot and the Hockey East Championships, culminating with repeated sellouts for both events in recent years. The 2004 Frozen Four at the FleetCenter was a huge success, with tickets for the BC/Maine semifinal among the hottest in town. Since its grand opening in 1995, over 45 million people have come to the TD Banknorth Garden to see the arena's famous tenants, the NHL's Boston Bruins and NBA's Boston Celtics, as well as world-renowned concerts and sporting events, family shows, wrestling, ice shows and much more. Measuring 755,000 square feet and sitting above a five story, 1,150 space parking garage, the state-of-the-art facility includes a multi-million dollar video scoreboard (Garden HDX), and a seating capacity of 17,565 for hockey games. The complex is easily accessible by the MBTA's Green Line, Orange Line, and Commuter Rail via North Station. In the summer of 2006, The TD Garden went through an extreme make-over.
