The NCAA will announce future men’s and women’s Frozen Four sites as well as future men’s regional sites at noon tomorrow.
UND is hoping to host a Women’s Frozen Four at Ralph Engelstad Arena. It is one of four finalists to do so from 2014-18.
UND also is hoping to host a men’s regional at Scheels Arena in Fargo. Why Fargo? The NCAA has gone away from campus sites for regionals, so Ralph Engelstad Arena is a longshot (even though UND did submit a bid for The Ralph, too).
UND has never hosted a Women’s Frozen Four. It last hosted a regional in 2006, when it beat Michigan and Holy Cross to advance to the Frozen Four.
