One of the early season tournaments in the nation, the Nye Frontier Classic, once again showcases some of the most successful programs in college hockey. Historically the Nye Frontier Classic has matched teams from the east coast against the west. The hosting Seawolves are defending after claiming their third title in four years and fifth overall in 2006. Be sure to stop by the Alumni Association table in the Sullivan Arena to get your Spirit Stick Balloons.
