2024 Frozen Four: Printable NCAA Hockey Bracket for College Tournament

Printable NCAA Hockey Bracket for the 2024 Frozen Four

Ok, for everyone who likes to watch NCAA hockey, the printable NCAA Hockey Bracket is out for the 2024 Frozen Four. The 2024 college playoffs get started with regional play on Thursday, and the national semifinals on April 11th, 2024. The championship game is set for April 12th at the Xcel Energy Center. ESPN will be showing all of the games this year between their family of networks and ESPN+. Boston College, Denver, Boston University, and Michigan State are the #1 seeds in the tournament. If you recall, Minnesota was the #1 seed in the 2023 Frozen Four.

Which Conferences get Automatic Qualifiers to the Tournament? 

There are 16 teams in the NCAA Hockey tournament. The champions from Atlantic Hockey, the Big Ten, CCHA, ECAC, Hockey East and NCHC are automatic qualifiers. The ten at-large spots get determined by the PairWise rankings. This works pretty smoothly for US College Hockey, so we’ll have to see if the NCAA adopts it for March Madness. You know what would be interesting for future tournaments?  Adding Canadian colleges and Universities into the Frozen Four. That would make the tourney a lot more competitive and wagering and casino free spins Canada would be financially beneficial to the NCAA and Canadian Association of Hockey. Until then, we’re locked into strong teams from the Northeast and Midwestern United States.
