WAKEFIELD, Mass. – Hockey East Commissioner Joe Bertagna has revealed the 2016 Road to the TD Garden schedule, leading to the 2016 Hockey East Tournament Championship to be held at the TD Garden. The eighth annual campaign will feature one of the most recognizable trophies in college hockey, once again bringing the Lamoriello Trophy, awarded annually to the Hockey East Tournament champion, to each of the 12 Hockey East campuses.
The Road to the TD Garden campaign will be completed ahead of the 32nd annual league tournament, March 18-19, 2016. A full schedule can be found below.
"Were are happy to bring the trophy to all of our schools and their fans," said Bertagna. "It is a unique item and symbolizes not only the best in Hockey East but the recipient is often the best in all of college hockey."
Hockey East's Graduate Intern, Justin Martino, will be responsible for transporting and displaying the two trophies on the tour. In conjunction with the Road to the TD Garden, Hockey East will be launching Justin's Championship Road Trip across all league social media platforms. Fans will be able to stay up-to-date on the trophy's whereabouts on its journey to each school and get a behind-the-scenes look at the tour on the @hockey_east Twitter and Instagram accounts.
Additionally, one of the first five people at each Road to the TD Garden stop to take a picture with Justin and the trophies, and post to Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #FindJM will be randomly chosen to win a pair of tickets to their choice of the Hockey East semifinals or Hockey East championship game. Contestants must follow @hockey_east and tag the account in the picture in order to be eligible.
