The ECAC-North features teams from Brown, Colgate, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Princeton, St. Lawrence, Vermont and Yale. Each school boasts a strong hockey tradition and several of the programs have been among the nation's elite for years. In 2001, Dartmouth, Harvard and St. Lawrence all participated in the inaugural NCAA Championship, while Brown played in the title game of the AWCHA Championship in 2000.

The annual awards banquet will be held at Dartmouth College on Friday, March 15 at the ECAC JPMorgan Chase Hockey Championship.
