When Is The NCAA Hockey Championship Game?

Boston College will meet Denver in the NCAA Men's Hockey National Championship game on Saturday, April 13. Here's what to know.

Apr 12, 2024 by R. R. Ellis

Boston College hockey will play Denver to decide the 2024 NCAA men's hockey national champion. Both teams made it through their Frozen Four matchups, albeit in vastly different ways. 

While Denver went into overtime against Macklin Celebrini's Boston Univerisity team, before striking with the game-winning goal, Boston College demolished their opponent, Michigan, 4-0. 

The NCAA Hockey National Championship final certainly feels like it's BC's to lose at this point, but don't underestimate a Denver program that has won two national championships in the last seven years. Most recently the Pioneers won the title two seasons ago, in 2022, defeating Mike Hastings' Minnesota State team.

BC goalie Jacob Fowler was terrific against the Wolverines, not only securing the shutout but collecting 32 saves in the process, nearly twice as many as the opposing goaltender, Michigan's Jake Barczewski.

Boston College has a roster full of former players who came from the USHL's U.S. National Team Development Program, including BC hockey stars Cutter Gauthier, Will Smith, Gabe Perreault and Drew Fortescue. Those players were also rostered on the World Junior Team USA, who won the 2024 World Juniors Championship by defeating Team Sweden. Denver has Zeev Buium, the No. 11 prospect in Chris Peters' 2024 Draft Rankings

Boston College had a run of championships about ten years ago, winning in 2008, 2010 and 2012 with Jerry York as head coach. 

The NCAA Hockey Championship game between Boston College and Denver is on April 13, at 6:00pm ET in St. Paul, MN.
