WCHA Announces Schedule Changes

The Men’s League of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association has adjusted its 2020-21 schedule to fill open dates created by Alaska Anchorage and Alaska Fairbanks opting out of the season. 

The eight competing WCHA teams will play their scheduled two-game league series against each of their seven remaining opponents for a total of 14 league games. Additionally, teams will also play two non-conference series against  WCHA opponents. Those matchups will feature the teams slated to play Alaska Anchorage and Alaska Fairbanks each  weekend in the original WCHA schedule.  

The additional games have been designated non-conference in order to maintain the balance of one league series per opponent that was agreed to when the current 2020-21 WCHA schedule was approved. 

The new non-league series are as follows. Dates are subject to change: 

Jan. 2-3: Bemidji State at Lake Superior State 

Jan. 8-9: Lake Superior State at Northern Michigan 

Jan. 15-16: Northern Michigan at Bowling Green 

Jan. 21-22: Bowling Green at Bemidji State 

Jan. 28-29: Alabama Huntsville at Minnesota State 

Feb. 5-6: Michigan Tech at Alabama Huntsville 

Feb. 12-13: Ferris State at Michigan Tech 

Feb. 19-20: Minnesota State at Ferris State 

The WCHA has also rescheduled the postponed Dec. 2 league game between Northern Michigan and Lake Superior  State to Saturday, Feb. 6 at Lake Superior State. 

The format for the 2020-21 WCHA Postseason will be announced at a later date. All WCHA games in January and  February and the WCHA Postseason will stream on FloHockey.tv.
