NCHC announces Colorado Springs head office

The new National Collegiate Hockey Conference announced today that it will locate its head office in Colorado Springs.

The league, which starts play in the 2013-2014 season, will operate in the Copper Building, adjacent to the world-famous Broadmoor Hotel.

“We’re very happy that the National Collegiate Hockey Conference has chosen to join USA Hockey and the entire amateur sports community by headquartering in Colorado Springs,” said executive director of USA Hockey Dave Ogrean in a statement. “We look forward to working with the Conference office and the six outstanding founding school progams that continue to develop the game at the college level.”

The NCHC has a number of other organizational initiatives that are underway, including the national search for its first commissioner, a process for identifying and evaluating prospective additional members and looking at possible venues for the conference’s championship tournament.
