WAKEFIELD, Mass. – Hockey East Commissioner Joe Bertagna has revealed the 2017 Road to the TD Garden schedule, leading to the 2017 Hockey East Tournament Championship to be held at the TD Garden. The ninth annual campaign will feature one of the most recognizable trophies in college hockey, once again bringing the Lou Lamoriello Trophy, awarded annually to the Hockey East Tournament champion, to each of the 12 Hockey East campuses.
