(WDAY TV) -- While the higher ups in the Big Sky wait and see what happens, the biggest movers and shakers on the UND campus were in the Twin Cities today.

As UND's future hockey conference home announced where they'll play their postseason tournament and it's close for Sioux fans...the inaugural NCHC Tourney will be played at Target Center in March of 2014.

Target Center has hosted NHL games and with a renovation coming, officials believe this site fits the bill.

UND Head Coach, Dave Hakstol, says," I think players, coaches and fans,

from around the conference will love coming to this building...will be tremendous venue, for Sioux fans, North Dakota played in last final five played here in 2000, came away with tournament championship, so great memories."

Incidentally, the Big 10 Tourney is slated to play in St Paul that same year

in 2014.
