The annual NCAA Men's Ice Hockey Championship tournament determines the top ice hockey team in the NCAA Division I and Division III. The semi-finals and finals are branded as the Frozen Four, as a parallel to the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship - known as the Final Four in later rounds - which was also previously used by the hockey championship.

This tournament is a single elimination competition that has determined the collegiate national champion since the inaugural 1948 NCAA Men's Division I Ice Hockey Tournament. The tournament was first referred to as the Frozen Four in 1999. The term is derived from the term "final four." The tournament structure begins with four regional sites culminating to a single site, where the national semifinals and final game are played. The NCAA started a Women's Frozen Four beginning in the 2000-01 season.

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

Division II

The Northeast Ten Conference is the last remaining Division II conference that sponsors ice hockey.
