newjerseydevils.com – Over the next two weeks, the best men’s collegiate hockey players will come together to crown a champion. The puck drops for the 60th Annual NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Championship on Friday.

The regionals are slated for four venues across the country. Both the East regional at Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, N.Y., and the Midwest regional at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids, Mich. will run from March 23-24.

Opening night in Rochester will feature third-ranked, ECACHL champion Clarkson (25-8-5) vs. UMass (20-12-5) at 2:30 p.m., and Maine (21-14-2) vs. St. Cloud St. (22-10-7) at 6 p.m. All times are Eastern.

The action in Grand Rapids will open with second-ranked, CCHA champion Notre Dame (31-6-3) vs. CHA winner Alabama-Huntsville (13-19-3) at 5 p.m., and Boston University (20-9-9) vs. Michigan St. (22-13-3) at 8:30 p.m.

The Northeast regional at Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester, N.H., and the West regional at Pepsi Center in Denver will run from March 24-25.

In Manchester, No. 4 New Hampshire (26-10-2) opens the Northeast against Miami of Ohio (23-13-4) at 1 p.m., and Hockey East tournament winner Boston College (26-11-1) takes on St. Lawrence (23-13-2) at 4:30 p.m.

The Denver slate of games begins with top-ranked, WCHA champion Minnesota (30-9-3) against Atlantic Hockey tourney champ Air Force (19-15-5) at 3:30 p.m., and North Dakota (22-13-5) against Michigan (26-13-1) at 7:30 p.m. Minnesota sophomore goaltender Jeff Frazee was selected 38th overall by the Devils in 2005.

After the conclusion of this weekend's action, the regional winners travel to St. Louis, where the Frozen Four will be decided at the Scottrade Center on April 5 and 7.
