USA Hockey Arena will continue to be the final destination for high school hockey programs for the foreseeable future.
The Michigan High School Athletic Association and USA Hockey have agreed on a five-year extension of their agreement, keeping the high school state semifinals and finals in Plymouth.
“The MHSAA is excited to continue our longstanding partnership with USA Hockey Arena on keeping the MHSAA High School Hockey Championships in Plymouth,” said MHSAA assistant director Cody Inglis. “We are happy to keep the finals in a great venue that has been updated to a first class arena facility by USA Hockey. The familiarity and geography of USA Hockey Arena to high school hockey fans and the dedicated USA Hockey Arena staff that have embraced the MHSAA to make this tournament special for student-athletes across the state, encouraged us to extend our agreement.”
USA Hockey Arena, previously named Compuware Arena, has hosted the state tournament final weekend for the past 15 seasons.
“We are ecstatic to extend our relationship with the MHSAA,” said USA Hockey Arena general manager Mike Henry. “We have enjoyed hosting the top high school hockey teams in the state for the past 15 years and look forward to helping create more memorable hockey history in the future.”
