Niagara Will Host Final CHA Tournament

Niagara will host the final CHA tournament at Dwyer Arena on March 12 and 13, 2010, the league announced.

The CHA is disbanding after the 2009-10 season. Niagara and Robert Morris are moving to Atlantic Hockey; Bemidji State is moving to the WCHA; and Alabama-Huntsville has applied for admission to the CCHA.

Dwyer Arena also hosted the tournament in 2008.

“We are thrilled to have the CHA tournament back at Dwyer Arena for the second time in three years,” Niagara athletic director and CHA commissioner Ed McLaughlin said in a news release. “We are honored to host what will be the final CHA tournament and to provide student-athletes throughout the conference with the best championship experience possible. Hosting this tournament gives college hockey fans throughout Western New York the chance to visit our campus and witness the best family value in the area.”

The 2009 tournament was held in Bemidji, Minn.
