Farmington Hills, Mich. - The Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) has announced the schedule for the 2013 CCHA Championship Weekend, March 22-24, 2013 in Detroit, Mich.

For the CCHA's "Celebrate the Legacy" final season, four teams will travel to Detroit's Joe Louis Arena in hopes of capturing the 42nd CCHA Championship that also includes an automatic berth in the NCAA Championship Tournament.

The CCHA semifinals will take place at 1:05 p.m. and 4:35 p.m. on Saturday, March 23. The championship game will be played at 2:05 p.m. on Sunday, March 24. Permission to hold the championship on Sunday, on a one-time only basis, was granted by the NCAA Division I Ice Hockey Committee. There will be no third-place game this season.

"Joe Louis Arena was unavailable for college hockey on Friday, March 22. We looked at the options and a Saturday-Sunday format is the best one," said CCHA Commissioner Fred Pletsch.

"Both the NCAA Men's Ice Hockey Committee and ESPN have been very accommodating in assisting us in finalizing our championship schedule. We look forward to an outstanding Championship Weekend."

The 2013 CCHA Championship marks the 32nd anniversary of the event being held at Joe Louis Arena. The first championship held at The Joe was in 1982 with Michigan State defeating Notre Dame, 4-1.

As part of the CCHA Championship Weekend, the league will also host its annual awards show at historic Fox Theater in downtown Detroit on Friday, March 22. The CCHA Awards, renowned as the `Oscars of College Hockey', celebrate the annual all-conference, scholar-athlete and all-rookie teams, along with individual honors, including the Player of the Year, Coach of the Year, Rookie of the Year, Scholar-Athlete of the Year, Perani Cup winners and the Mike and Marian Ilitch Humanitarian Award.
