The Ledyard Bank Classic (formerly the Auld Lang Syne Classic) is a college Division I men's ice hockey tournament played before New Years at the Thompson Arena in Hanover, New Hampshire, the home arena for Dartmouth College.

The tournament was first held in 1978 and was usually played on the final two days of December every year until 1988.[1] Since then it was played infrequently (though with no more than a two-year gap between events) until 2008 when it returned to an annual schedule which it continues to possess (except for 2014).[2] In 2002 the holiday tournament changed its name from 'Auld Lang Syne' to 'Ledyard Bank' due to sponsorship.

In 2016 the schedule was set before the event and, as such, it did not have a championship game.
