The Sabres are co-sponsoring a bid by the Mid-Atlantic Athletic Conference to host the college hockey championships at the First Niagara Center some time between 2015 and 2018. The MAAC also wants Ralph Wilson Stadium, home of the Buffalo Bills, to host the NCAA lacrosse quarterfinals in the same time frame.
"We've very proud of the resume we've built hosting large-scale sporting events," Sabres President Ted Black said. "Our ability to cater to the demands of big events will only be accentuated with the arrival of HARBORCenter next year. Buffalo is well-known for being a sports-crazy town, especially in hockey, and our facilities will soon rival any across the country. It would be an honor to bring the Frozen Four tournament back to Buffalo and to watch hockey thrive in the best possible setting."
All three games Buffalo hosted in the 2003 Frozen Four sold out. Sabres draft pick Thomas Vanek was the tournament's most valuable player as his Minnesota Golden Gophers won the title.
