  • 2020 Regional sites - any predictions?

    Mike McMahon is reporting that the regional sites for 2020 will be announced next week.

    Which cities do people here think will get them?

    EDIT: Ed Trefzger reports 2021 regional sites will be out next week as well.

      Hope you're right - would be very happy with Bridgeport or Worcester as far as a potential trip goes.

          The Ice Breaker is in Toledo. Maybe they'll bookend it with the Midwest.

            West will be Sioux Falls, Fargo, or St Paul. I have a hard time believing anyone else bothered bidding. I guess there was a report that maybe Loveland Colorado bid for their AHL rink, so that’s a possibility.

            For the Midwest, I’ll assume Allentown until told otherwise. There are some good ideas for regional hosts that haven’t been tried yet (Erie, Milwaukee, Chicago/Rosemont) but I have no reason to suspect that they’ve made a bid.

              Brad Schlossman says Loveland, Colorado expected to be a site.

                Portland should be in the mix.

                  Ed Trefzger says both 2020 and 2021 will be announced, with one new location in the mix.

                  Supports the rumor that Loveland has won a bid.

                      My predictions (2020 & 2021):

                      West: Loveland & Sioux Falls (maybe Fargo instead of SF)
                      MW: St Paul & Allentown (maybe Grand Rapids instead of Allentown)
                      East: Bridgeport & Providence
                      NE: Worcester & Manchester

                        Did Providence put in a bid for 2021? I thought they had a conflict with the men's basketball regionals.

                          I have no idea. I’m working on the assumption that they’ll keep cycling Providence/Manchester and Bridgeport/Worcester.

                          If any of those four are out, I’d put Albany, Rochester and maybe Allentown on the list of alternative locations (with Albany as the first choice).

                            St Paul won't host anymore. Arena is too big for what college hockey has evolved into.
