Experience The NCHC Hockey Tournament

Every year, the best in college hockey battle for the title of NCHC Champions. Grab a pair of tickets and stay with us at Minnestay for this annual NCHC Frozen Faceoff! Watch as your favorite college teams put their game faces and give it their all in this yearly event at the Xcel Energy Center, which is a hub for many entertaining things to do in St Paul.

When And Where

The NCHC Frozen Faceoff is a yearly event that college hockey fans look forward to each winter. Most of the fans are usually North Dakota and end up flooding the streets with green jerseys; however, you will see a hearty amount of Minnesota fans filing as well. This is an affordable event that is a fantastic way to experience an exciting day of hockey, fans, and fun! The Xcel Energy Center adds even more excitement during the championships with the “Fan Fest,” where you will find food trucks, music, and beer. Four games over two days, passionate fans, fierce college teams, and the best of things to do in St Paul all make the Frozen Faceoff one event that you will not want to miss during your Minnestay getaway.  

A Hockey Experience To Remember

When you attend the Frozen Faceoff, there are a few fantastic places to attend before and in between games for food, drink, and entertainment. Cossetta is the best place for authentic Italian cuisine and is only a block from the Xcel. You can also enjoy a lively atmosphere with an indoor food truck park and bar at the Truck Park. Not only is this place unique, but it is a short walk from the Xcel and hosts a myriad of delicious foods, refreshing beverages, and entertainment! For a little more of an elegant atmosphere, check out the Downtowner Woodfire Grill. Their wines and oak-wood burned entrees are sure to fill you up and tantalize your taste buds while you are in town.
