The University of Minnesota will host the 2018 Frozen Four at the Xcel Energy Center, the NCAA announced Wednesday. It's the third time the Xcel Energy Center has hosted the tournament, and ninth time Minnesota has hosted, according to the release.

The St. Paul Civic Center also has hosted the Frozen Four three times.

Additionally, the Xcel Energy Center will host the 2016 Western Regional. The 2015 Division III Men's hockey tournament will be held at Ridder Arena on the campus of the University of Minnesota. That tournament will be hosted by the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association.
