The Malik Report

The post-CCHA college hockey world threw the Great Lakes Invitational, which is held at Joe Louis Arena every December, into flux, and DetroitRedWings.com’s Bill Roose reports that the newly-created Big 10 conference well replace it…On an every-other-year basis:
The Big Ten Conference announced that its inaugural men’s ice hockey season will conclude with a championship tournament in 2014 and will alternate between the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn., and Joe Louis Arena.
St. Paul will host the league championship in 2014 and 2016, while Detroit will host the six-team tourney in 2015 and 2017.
The tournament will include all six teams – Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Ohio State, Penn State and Wisconsin – in a single-elimination format. Thursday’s quarterfinals will pit the No. 3 seed vs. the No. 6 seed and the No. 4 seed vs. the No. 5 seed.

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
