Southern Maine, UNE join new ice hockey conference

The future of men’s and women’s hockey in the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) East had been in doubt for the past month, but its future was clarified on late Friday afternoon.

The ECAC East no longer exists.

Sixteen schools, formerly comprising the ECAC East, including the University of Southern Maine and University of New England, announced on Friday that they have left the league, starting a new conference named New England Hockey Conference (NEHC) effectively immediately for the 2015-2016 season.

The league will have a new administration team and will sponsor both men’s and women’s divisions, which will remain eligible for automatic bids to the NCAA Division III Tournament.
