Penn State Moves to New Conference Next Season

Concerned with continual dominance every year by the Penn State Icers, the ACHA has announced the forming of a new conference within the ACHA called the Eastern States Collegiate Hockey League.

This brand new conference will contain the charter members of Navy, Drexel, Delaware, Rhode Island, Scranton, and Penn State as a Division 1 collegiate league. Each team next season will play 20 league games with 4 games each against each other (splitting 2 home and 2 away). The really good teams will then fight it out in a 4 team playoff setting hosted next season by the US Naval Academy (#1 vs #4 and #2 vs #3) in February 15-16th.

The current Penn State team stands ranked at #2 (18-3-0, 17-1-0 ACHA) looking for their final National Championship in the ACHA. They trail only Illinois University in the national rankings.
