    The NEHC is dead. What else were they supposed to do? What else were they supposed to say?

    I don't attend many games anymore, but three questions arise:
    1. I don't believe the MAC holds anywhere near 3,200 anymore since the removal of the bench side bleachers?
    1. I never knew that. Interesting. (It's been awhile since I've been there.)

    2. The move to the NEHC was justified and rationalized by better recruiting exposure and potential. So has that goal been now replaced by shorter away trips for the students and fans?

  • St John Fisher dominates nearly every sport in which they participate, and heavily over-recruits to ensure that success. Will ice hockey become the next?

    Elmira didn’t have a choice to move as the NEHC will no longer exist.

    From the UCHC website announcement ...

    The UCHC Championship trophy is named after Pat Thompson, former Elmira Vice President of Athletics. The Soaring Eagles play at the historic 3,200-seat Murray Athletic Center in Horseheads, NY.

    “We are excited to return to a familiar home for our hockey programs ahead of the 2025-26 season,” said Rhonda Faunce, Elmira College Director of Athletics. “We were fortunate to be able to capture five league championships in the league between our two programs in just four seasons in the UCHC. Returning to a league that we are familiar with and is more regionally located will provide a positive experience for our student-athletes and fan base.”

    ...

    St. John Fisher will begin play for both men's and women's hockey in 2025-26. The Cardinals, who have enjoyed tremendous conference and national success in several sports as a member of the Empire 8, will have 26 NCAA Division III sports with the addition of both ice hockey programs. St. John Fisher has won a combined 104 Empire 8 Championships since the league was formed in 1999.

    I think the NEHC still could have survived and still thrived without the LEC teams. Would it have a been a tough league for travel/competition? Absolutely...but I think there was still a way forward for the NEHC if Norwich and Babson stayed.
