Marian University has announced the departure of men's head coach Lincoln Nguyen to an undisclosed Division I position, and simultaneously announced the return of former assistant Zach Gaynor as Head Coach.
What has been a long wait for an automatic bid amongst the former ECAC West membership, may possibly become a year longer after an NCAA committee denied a time waiver request from the UCHC that would have permitted the league to get into Pool A in Fall 2018 as originally scheduled.
Wilkes University will have to wait a bit longer to see hockey. The Northeast Pennsylvania school announced it will have to delay women's hockey from this season to next, mirroring the launch schedule for their men's program.
The question of who would replace Chris Brooks at Stevens Point turns out to be a short-lived one, as the school announced the promotion of associate coach Tyler Krueger to interim head coach for the upcoming season.
