COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Western Michigan University and St. Cloud University have accepted invitations to join the National Collegiate Hockey Conference.

They are the seventh and eighth schools to join the NCAA Division I league that starts play in 2013-14.

For the next two years, St. Cloud State will play in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association and Western Michigan in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association.

Then, they'll join founding members Colorado College, University of Denver, Miami University, Minnesota-Duluth, Nebraska-Omaha and North Dakota in the NCHC. The league was created in response to the Big Ten's fledgling hockey league taking Minnesota and Wisconsin from the WCHA.
