The NCAA Men's Ice Hockey Championship refers to either of the two championships in men's ice hockey – one in Division I and one in Division III – contested by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) since 1971.[1] The NCAA Division II Men's Ice Hockey Championship, contested from 1978 to 1984 and from 1993 to 1999, was discontinued due to a lack of Division II conferences sponsoring ice hockey.

Starting in 1999, the semi-finals and finals for the Division I championship are branded as the "Frozen Four", echoing the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament's "Final Four".

The NCAA started a Women's Frozen Four beginning with the 2000-01 season.

The Hobey Baker Award ceremony, Hockey Humanitarian Award ceremony, and Town Hall Meeting take place annually during Frozen Four weekend.[2]

The 2020 Championships were cancelled due to ongoing concerns over the coronavirus.[3][4][5]
