ECAC Men’s Hockey Championship | Olympic Center

Friday, March 18 & Saturday, March 19, 2022

If you like the excitement and fast action of hockey, there is no place better to see it than Lake Placid, New York–the Winter Sports Capital of the World! Come see the best in the NCAA Division I Ice Hockey Schools from the Eastern College Athletic Conference compete for the ECAC championship title.

The New York State Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) and ECAC Hockey have announced a three-year agreement for the ECAC Hockey Men’s Championship, which will take place at the newly modernized 1980 Herb Brooks Arena in the Olympic Center.

Since the last ECAC Hockey Championship in Lake Placid in 2019, the 1980 Arena has undergone significant upgrades. It is now equipped with new dasher boards that allow it to be converted to either international or NHL size standards. The Championship in March will utilize the 200ft x 85ft NHL size, which is more typical of the rinks that ECAC Hockey programs compete on each season.

The 1980 Arena’s other impressive upgrades will be completed in January 2021, and include new seating, modernized media and concession areas, hospitality suites, new restrooms, a renovated concourse, LED event and broadcast-quality lighting, and a new air handling/dehumidification system. The 1980 Arena will be networked to the Olympic Center’s new industrial refrigeration plant, designed to make ice with improved reliability and efficiency. Ice is now maintained with a new electric Zamboni.

Tickets will be on-sale soon.  For any questions, please call the Olympic Center Box Office at (518) 523-3330 during normal business hours.
