Niagara University Dwyer Arena

Dwyer Arena has hosted the CHA Men's Ice Hockey Tournament twice.

College Hockey America (CHA) is a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I ice hockey-only conference based in Detroit, Michigan that was formed in mid-1999 after the dissolution of Division II ice hockey.[1] After the completion of each regular season, it holds the CHA Men's Ice Hockey Tournament to determine its conference champion. In 2002, CHA commissioned the Bruce M. McLeod Trophy, named after its first commissioner, which is awarded to the tournament champion.[2] In 2003, CHA was granted an annual automatic bid to the NCAA Men's Ice Hockey Championship for its tournament champion.[3][4] Before this, the only CHA team to have played in the national championship tournament was Niagara, which received an at-large bid into the 2000 tournament.[5] No CHA team has won a national championship, and the 2000 Niagara team is the only CHA team to have advanced past the first round.[5]

Nine CHA Men's Ice Hockey Tournaments have been held since the formation of CHA. The tournament was first hosted at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Alabama, and was won by Niagara.[6] Niagara and Wayne State have won the most CHA Men's Ice Hockey Tournaments, with three each.[7] Alabama-Huntsville and Bemidji State have the most championship game appearances, with five each.[7] Bill Wilkinson has coached three championship teams, more than any other CHA coach, while Doug Ross and Tom Serratore have the most championship game appearances as a coach, with five each.[8] The Von Braun Center, Dwyer Arena in Lewiston, New York, and Tri-City Arena in Kearney, Nebraska have each hosted the tournament twice.[7] The 2009 tournament will be held March 13 and 14 at the John S. Glas Field House in Bemidji, Minnesota.[9]
