Illinois getting NCAA D1 hockey team

Another ACHA hockey team is making the jump to D1.

Some breaking news from today. It sounds like the University of Illinois will announce the addition of an NCAA D1 men’s hockey team on May 14.

Some may be shocked, but we predicted this a long time ago. Until ASU gets a new barn, the NCAA will hold off on expanding out west. Illinois makes sense. The hockey scene is booming there, the club team has been very successful and they’ve got the blueprints for a new barn.

Kinda funny how D3 schools aren’t the ones to make that transition… maybe the NCAA is already making enough money off them?
