Seven members of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association — including Bemidji State and Minnesota State Mankato — initiated the process to leave the league and form a new men's conference that would begin play in the 2021-22 season.

In an announcement released Friday through athletics consultant Morris Kurtz, a former St. Cloud State athletic director, the seven schools — which also include Bowling Green, Ferris State, Lake Superior State, Michigan Tech and Northern Michigan — independently submitted formal letters of notice to the WCHA office initiating the withdrawal process. The seven teams will play in the WCHA in the 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons.

Alaska is doomed in a sense as to their hockey program. I'm hearing that Arizona State also is having trouble getting teams to play them.

Where will St. Thomas hockey land?
I think it will be with this conference, and it will be fast tracked due the "involuntary removal". I am less convinced that UST will attempt to speed up a full DI jump.

Arizona State will be fine... Alaska teams not so much.
