Here is the field for the first annual CHIT. Quarterfinals will be played on campus sites with the Not so Frozen Four to take place at MSG:

8- Dartmouth at 1- Western Michigan
7- Providence at 2- Robert Morris
6- Brown at 3- Boston University
5- Alaska at 4- Rensselaer

Apologies to CC and Michigan as teams that do not have a .500 record are not eligible.

No. It's a play on the NIT for basketball.

The annual "College Hockey NIT" thread got started early this year!

There was once a real College Hockey NIT, back in 1974.

Didn't know that Ralph. How many teams and where were they played?

Duluth, 4 teams


Here's the info from an old Intercollegiate Hockey Newsletter

semis: UVM 3 Lake State 2, Duluth 6 St Louis Univ 3
consolation St Louis 7 Lake State 5
championship Duluth 7 UVM 4

IIRC, UVM was still ECAC-2 back then.


Edit: The name was National Invitational Hockey Tournament (NIHT).

The fact that you have to ask leads me to believe you don't spend much time here. ;)

Here's a clue for you: if Michigan and CC would have won their last game, they wouldn't need no stinkin CHIT tourney. Michigan was a .500 team until they lost yesterday. Didn't check CC's record. :p

Quite an NIT rivalry brewing between PC and Bobby Mo considering they played/are playing each other in hoops.

Not such a bad idea here. More hockey for those who can't get enough. If they can do it for hoops why not hockey?

And we can have the CHI (College Hockey Invitation) instead of the CTI and the CIT (Collegiate Insiders Tournament) too! :D

That's BS, Michigan destroyed western in their own building.

Dammit, I miss hockey season already. :(

Can the NCAA tournament expand to 32?

I move that this tourney be renamed to the Scholar's Hockey Invitational Tournament.

At least the NCAA should allow a Tuesday night play-in match vs Canisius

Robert Morris is pretty good at these things. I like them to take the CHIT.

To be fair they probably have never heard of Omaha
