    Notre Dame Hockey heading to Hockey East

    SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre Dame is leaving the Central Collegiate Hockey Association for Hockey East, beginning with the 2013-14 season.

    The Fighting Irish announced the move Wednesday during a news conference on the ice at their brand new hockey home, the $50 million Compton Family Ice Arena.

    Notre Dame, which has been a member of the CCHA since 1992, will become the 11th member of Hockey East. Current members include Boston College, Boston University, Maine, UMass, UMass-Lowell, Merrimack, New Hampshire, Northeastern, Providence and Vermont.

    Conference realignment is shaking up college hockey.

    The Western Collegiate Hockey Association has invited five teams from the CCHA to join in two years, when the Big Ten starts its hockey league. The new National Collegiate Hockey Conference will also begin play that year with eight schools.

    At least 18 of the 58 teams currently playing NCAA Division I hockey -- 31 percent -- will change conferences by 2013.

    Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick said the Irish considered three options -- going independent, joining the NCHC or Hockey East. Notre Dame has a huge fan base on the East Coast.



    There is a bonus for the Irish and the other schools in Hockey East. Swarbrick said NBC, which has a longstanding contract to do Notre Dame home football games, announced it would begin televising Irish hockey. Details were not complete.

    I sort of expected the new Super Conference but this will be just dandy. Looks like ND hockey is coming to Versus (soon to be NBC Sports Network).
