Title: NEHC Expansion
Post by: PeterLangella on January 20, 2017, 10:29:02 am
With both Saints getting the boot and Daniel Webster folding, has anyone heard any updates on the NEHC getting an eighth member for next year?

Great addition to the league but the travel will kill these guys. Why add so many thousands of miles and dollars to the budget? ECAC West is a solid league and getting stronger every year. This makes no sense; has me scratching my head...

Perhaps the prospect of the new teams in Central and Southern Pennsylvania joining the UCHC makes the NEHC travel not quite so burdensome by contrast!?

Bit late to the mix, but I THINK (Redlight hasn't said anything) this is how it will play out in 18-19

Travel Partners
Norwich - Castleton
NEC - USM
Skidmore - Hobart
Babson - Johnson & Wales
Mass-Boston - Suffolk

No idea if they'll have a 10 team or 8 team playoff.
