RE: Official Liberty Flames Hockey Thread
New D1 hockey news. WCHA members look to undergo new changes.

"Seven prominent NCAA Division I men's hockey playing institutions have announced the exploration of a new Division I men's hockey conference that would begin play with the 2021-2022 season. The seven institutions include: Bemidji State University; Bowling Green State University; Ferris State University; Lake Superior State University; Michigan Technological University; Minnesota State University, Mankato; and Northern Michigan University."

This situation leaves out two Alaska schools and Alabama-Huntsville. The remaining schools comprise of 5 Michigan schools, 1 Ohio school, and 1 Minnesota school. This new conference will significantly help with travel costs. Also, Arizona State is without a conference at this time.

The main point is the this is a very relevant shift and development in D1 hockey. LU should keep a very close eye on the situation to see if a good opportunity is there for a possible jump to D1 hockey.
