ASU announced last November that Sun Devil Athletics will add ice hockey as its 23rd NCAA Division I sport starting for the 2015-16 season. Sun Devil hockey will compete at the NCAA D1 level immediately playing 25 games against NCAA D1 opponents.
Arizona State is the first school from a power-five conference to make the move to the NCAA level since Penn State joined the NCAA in 2012 (the Big Ten didn’t officially sponsor hockey until 2013) and one of a handful of schools that supports NCAA D1 ice hockey west of the Mississippi River.
ASU elevated head coach Greg Powers to the NCAA level in the same position. He is in his eighth year overall as a member of the Sun Devil Hockey coaching staff. Powers led the ACHA program to a national title in 2013-14 and has a 164-27-9 record all-time as head coach. Powers is a former ASU goaltender, and is a member of the ASU Hockey Hall of Fame.
