PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The NCAA is bringing the men’s college hockey championships to Pennsylvania for back-to-back Frozen Fours.

The Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Committee says Pittsburgh will host the 2013 Frozen Four at Consol Energy Center, while the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia will be the venue for the 2014 championship.

Consol, set to open next month, is the home ice for the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins, while the Wachovia Center, home of the Flyers, is no stranger to hosting NCAA tourneys, including the first and second rounds of the 2006 Division I men’s basketball tournament.

The decision, announced Tuesday, means that, for the first time, NCAA Division I hockey championships will be played in the Keystone state.
