CCHA Announces 30-Day Countdown To Championship Weekend

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. – The Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) has announced a '30-Day Countdown' to the final CCHA Championship Weekend at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit on March 22-24, 2013.

As part of the CCHA's 'Celebrate the Legacy' initiative, each day a CCHA historical fact from the league's 42-year history, along with an accompanying photo or video, will be featured on CCHA.com, the CCHA Twitter feed and Facebook page.  

The 30-Day Countdown starts tomorrow, Saturday, February 23rd with "30", and counts down to "1" on the day of the CCHA Championship final on March 24th.

For tomorrow's kickoff to the 30-Day Countdown, the conference has uncovered video of one of the most famous plays in CCHA history.

"Fans from all eras are going to enjoy revisiting some of the great plays, players and interesting facts from the conference's history," said Fred Pletsch, CCHA Commissioner. "I was told for over a decade that no video exists of the play that begins the countdown. It is 'must see' for sure, just like the final Championship contest will be on March 24."
