NCAA hockey tournament selection show 2024: Time, TV channel for road to Frozen Four reveal

The twisting, winding road to the Frozen Four will narrow just a bit on Sunday evening during the Selection Show. 

Sixteen teams will learn their fate for the single-elimination bracket. The NCAA men’s hockey tournament field will be composed of six automatic bids (teams that won their conference tournaments) and 10 at-large teams, as determined by the selection committee. 

Last year, Minnesota, Michigan, Boston University and Quinnipiac advanced to the Frozen Four in Tampa, Florida. Quinnipiac won the national championship with a dramatic, 3-2 overtime victory over Minnesota. 

What does this year’s tournament have in store? We begin to find out the answers when the matchups and destinations are announced Sunday evening.

NCAA hockey tournament selection format

Sixteen teams comprise the field for the 2024 NCAA men’s hockey tournament. 

Of those 16 teams, six will be auto-bids, punching the coveted ticket by virtue of winning their conference tournament. The remaining 10 best at-large teams will be selected and placed by the committee with the help of PairWise rankings. 


The 16 teams will be divided into groups of four and set to play at the four regional sites (Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Providence, Rhode Island; Springfield, Massachusetts; Maryland Heights, Missouri).

Through single-elimination, one team will advance out of each regional and into the Frozen Four, which will be played in St. Paul, Minnesota.
