The location of the Division III version of the Frozen Four for the 2009-2010 season has been a topic of debate in recent months. Some NCAA documents and those who closely follow the game had the site located out west at Ridder. Other documents and fans said the championship would be held yet again at Lake Placid.
Well, the drama is over. The Olympic Regional Development Authority says that the village of Lake Placid is hosting the event for the third year in a row on March 19 and 20 of 2010.
That is great news for New Yorkers. Once again, DIII's premier event will be in our backyard (albeit six hours away from Brockport) at the most hallowed venue for American hockey, Herb Brooks Arena. I'm looking forward to attending again, making it the fourth DIII Frozen Four I've been to.
