St. Cloud State President Earl Potter confirmed at a press conference today that SCSU will accept the invitation of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference and join when the conference starts play in the 2013-2014 season. SCSU has spent the last 22 seasons in the WCHA and will spend two more years in the WCHA before leaving. St. Cloud State President Earl Potter said the decision was tough to leave the conference but is was the best move for the University.
