Utah Hockey is proud to announce the full schedule and ticketing information for the 2023 American Collegiate Hockey Association Men’s Division 2 Regional Tournament, which will bring the very best teams of the West within Men’s Division 2 hockey to the State of Sport!
The tournament will be hosted by the University of Utah and the Salt Lake City Sports Complex in Salt Lake City, Utah from February 23-25, 2023.
Utah Hockey has a storied history with hosting ACHA events including the 2013 ACHA Regional Tournament, 2014 PAC-8 Championships, 2015 Wasatch Cup, 2015 ACHA Division 2 National Tournament, 2020 Wasatch Cup, and the 2020 Women’s Western Collegiate Hockey League Championships.
The 2023 ACHA Men’s Division 2 Regional Tournament format is unchanged from previous seasons. Each region (Central, Northeast, Southeast, West) sends four teams to the 2023 ACHA National Championships in Boston, Massachusetts.
Following the release of the final Men’s Division 2 regular season rankings, the top two seeds from each region will receive an automatic berth to the 2023 ACHA National Championships and bypass the regional process. The remaining two teams per region going to the 2023 ACHA National Championships will be decided at the respective Regional Tournament.
The 2023 ACHA Regional Tournament Ticket package is only available online. Purchase today and get all 10 ACHA Regional Games for 50% off of retail. Individual game tickets will be available online and at the door.
All broadcasts will be on HockeyTV.
Each Regional Tournament will consist of 12 teams. Teams seeded #3 through #10 will receive an invitation to their respective Regional. Teams seeded #11 through #14 will be filled by conference auto bids. In the event that any of the conference auto bids are not filled (i.e., team has already qualified, unable to accept bid, less than four eligible conferences, etc.), the position(s) in the Regional will be filled by the next highest ranked team(s) within that Region as an At-Large bid.
