College Hockey:
WCHA adjusts schedule to give Alabama-Huntsville full complement of league games

Alabama-Huntsville will have a full league schedule when it joins the WCHA next season.

When the WCHA voted in January to accept the Chargers as its 10th member for the 2013-14 season, commissioner Bruce McLeod said the league would make a “good-faith effort” to give UAH a complete schedule. But at that point, a nine-team league schedule for 2013-14 was nearly complete and needed some significant adjustments to accommodate the Chargers.

The league unveiled its 2013-14 conference schedule on Thursday, and it includes a 28-game schedule for all 10 teams.

The Chargers will make their WCHA debut on Oct. 25 when they host Bemidji State. UAH will play 10 nonconference games next season, including a home series against St. Cloud State and series at Northeastern, Notre Dame and Wisconsin. It also will compete in a Thanksgiving weekend event at Notre Dame along with the Fighting Irish, Northeastern and Western Michigan.
