Another Polar Vortex is sweeping across the region forcing many indoors but there are still some adventurous souls braving the cold.

Nathan Cramer normally plays in-line hockey but earlier this year he invested in a pair of hockey skates.

Cincinnati and Miami University will host the 2016 NCAA Division One Men's Ice Hockey MidWest Regional. The 2014 MidWest Regional is also being held in Cincinnati.

The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber expects the two-day tournament will generate more than 850 hotel room nights.

Games will be played at US Bank Arena.

In a release, the Chamber says,

Despite being one of the winningest professional sports franchises in the Greater Cincinnati area lately, The Cincinnati Cyclones do some of their hardest work off the ice.

The Cyclones, our ECHL representatives and affiliate with both the Nashville Predators and the Florida Panthers, pride themselves on providing a fun, affordable and family-friendly atmosphere for all of their home games.

Sean Lynn, director of marketing and PR for the Cyclones gave me a preview of some of the upcoming events and attractions that the 2013 season will bring, including Star Wars Night, Super Hero Night (featuring Capn' America team jerseys and an appearance by Iron Man), Kids Eat Free Nights and much more.
