Big Ten to Add Hockey for 2013-14?

After years of speculation, and the recent announcement of Penn State adding Division 1 hockey for both men and women, it seems the inevitable is now all but official:

The Big Ten Conference seems to be planning the first major collegiate conference to add D1 hockey.

The Big Ten’s own official release on it can be found here.

The Big Ten would boast powers from two of the premier D1 men\‘s hockey conferences—Wisconsin and Minnesota from the WCHA, and Michigan, Michigan St., and Ohio St. from the CCHA.  Penn St., who has not committed to a conference yet, would be the sixth team.

While the WCHA has not responded yet, the CCHA has an official response in which they state that the announcement is not a surprise and that they have been talking to the Big Ten for some time.
