Relatively big news in College Hockey today, as USCHO.com reports that Notre Dame is leaving Hockey East after 2016-17 to join the Big Ten in 2017-18.
Notre Dame is preparing to leave Hockey East for the Big Ten in the 2017-18 season, sources told USCHO on Tuesday.
The school joined Hockey East three seasons ago in the massive conference realignment for western schools.
That coincided with the formation of the Big Ten, which has been at six teams but is poised to add a seventh.
This is welcome news for the Big Ten, especially after this past weekend...
