BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – Oct. 28, 2020 – The Men’s League of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association has finalized
an 18-game league schedule for the abbreviated 2020-21 men’s ice hockey season. Each WCHA team will play a single
series against the other nine league schools with all but three of the contests slated to be played in January and
February 2021.

Additionally, league teams will play a total of 38 non-league games beginning Nov. 20. Due to limited opportunities for
contests against non-league opponents this season, 30 of those contests will pit WCHA teams against each other in
games that will not count in the league standings.

Return to Competition Protocols
In addition to state and local health and safety guidelines in force at each WCHA campus, the 2020-21 schedule will play
out under the WCHA’s Return to Competition protocols. Those protocols will include COVID-19 testing for studentathletes, coaches, staff and game officials as well as social-distancing requirements at all WCHA arenas.

Non-League Contests
While every WCHA team will face at least one other league opponent in non-league competition, Alabama Huntsville and
Bowling Green are the only WCHA teams scheduled to face teams from outside the league. The Chargers will visit Robert
Morris on Nov. 20-21, the opening weekend of the regular season, while Bowling Green will travel to Robert Morris on
Nov. 24 before a home-and-home series with Mercyhurst, Nov. 27 (away) and Nov. 29 (home).

BGSU will visit Quinnipiac Dec. 18-19 and host Robert Morris on Dec. 29 to conclude the non-league season for the
WCHA. The Falcons are also slated to play a road exhibition game against the U.S. National Team Development Program
on Nov. 7.

League Schedule
The chase for the MacNaughton Cup will begin on Dec. 2 when Northern Michigan visits Lake Superior State for a single
league game. Minnesota State will visit Alaska Anchorage Dec. 18-19 for the only other WCHA league games currently
scheduled to be played prior to the end of the calendar year.

League play will begin in earnest the weekend of Jan. 1-2 with five league series – Alabama Huntsville at Michigan Tech,
Alaska Anchorage at Bemidji State, Alaska at Lake Superior State, Bowling Green at Ferris State and Minnesota State at
Northern Michigan.

The regular season will conclude Feb. 24-27 with each school playing a home-and-home series with its designated
travel partner- Alabama Huntsville vs. Bowling Green, Alaska vs. Alaska Anchorage, Bemidji State vs. Minnesota State
Ferris State vs. Lake Superior State and Michigan Tech vs. Northern Michigan.

The weekend of March 5-6 has been designated as a bye weekend for all 10 schools and will be used as a make-up
game weekend should any league series or single games be postponed.
