Conference affiliation changes in Division I are not limited to the Super League.
Next up: Northern Michigan likely to return to the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.
Northern Michigan coach Walt Kyle said Monday he could not comment on the situation, but sources indicated an agreement could be reached at a WCHA meeting Friday, which would bring the Wildcats back in the WCHA by 2013-14.
It’s possible Alaska-Fairbanks of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association will be the next addition to the WCHA.
Northern Michigan, a member of the CCHA, was in the WCHA from 1984-85 through 1996-97, and was league champion in 1990-91.
The Wildcats were 15-19-5 last season and in 2009-10 were 20-13-8 and advanced to the NCAA playoffs.
