New Power Conference in Hockey Gets Name
The new super conference in College Hockey has a name, finally: National Collegiate Hockey Conference. The new conference consists of Miami (Oh), Denver, Colorado College, Nebraska Omaha, North Dakota, and Minnesota Duluth. All six teams run highly successful programs that have won a combined 17 National Championships. These teams all have very successful programs and want to get a lot of national exposure.
Don't worry Gopher fans, the Gophs are still the Yankees of college Hockey. The Big Ten is still a really good hockey conference with power teams such as Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. I wouldn't be too worried about the Gophers having any trouble in this conference.
