Colorado College, DU Join New Hockey Conference

OMAHA, Neb. (AP/CBS4) – Six of the top college hockey programs plan to form a new league in 2013-14, so another conference shakeup appears likely.

The schools involved issued a joint statement Saturday confirming their plans to form a new conference. Rumors about the move were reported earlier this week.

Colorado College, Denver, reigning NCAA champion Minnesota Duluth, Nebraska-Omaha and North Dakota will all leave the Western Collegiate Hockey Association to create the new conference. They’ll be joined by current Central Collegiate Hockey Association member Miami of Ohio.

The schools said details of the new league will be provided at a news conference in Colorado Springs on Wednesday.

The landscape of college hockey was already significantly altered this year when the Big Ten announced a plan to form a hockey conference in two seasons.
