It is the epitome of college hockey in the United States. The Frozen Four is the two day, four team final tournaments to crown the National Champion in NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey. The 2019 version is being hosted by the MAAC, Canisius College and Niagara University at KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York. The home of the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres has welcomed two teams from each of the Hockey East and NCHC hockey conferences in a curious drawing. However, not all has been rosy in Bison City.
The Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds are most definitely a competitive experience that can be compared to most any Ontario Hockey League experience. The GFL Memorial Gardens is one of the best venues in the league and the Hounds are a consistently competitive team. When in the Sault, it is a great idea to check out some Hound Power.
The Niagara IceDogs continue to provide an excellent experience and fit well in the Ontario Hockey League. It is fantastic that junior hockey has finally found success and needed stability in the Niagara Region after so many other attempts. Fans should definitely catch an IceDogs game, especially when checking out Niagara Falls.
A trip to Exactech Arena at Stephen C. O’Connell Center is not a mecca experience however, fans will be pleasantly surprised at just how good the experience is. Gators basketball offers a great return on investment and a whole lot of fun that the whole family can enjoy.
Kingston is one of the truly great places to visit in Ontario. The Kingston Frontenacs can be a part of a stop in Kingston and the Leon’s Centre is a solid facility. The Fronts are pushing the envelope in what fans can expect for a game day experience and the product on the ice can only get better. Hockey fans should definitely take a trip to Eastern Ontario to the historic, vibrant city of Kingston and make plans to catch the Fronts in action. There will be no regrets.
