UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS

Nationally, Illinois produces the fourth-most college hockey players behind Minnesota, Michigan and Massachusetts, but it is the only state among that group without a Division I program. (Lake Forest College and Aurora University have Division III programs.) That’s why the University of Illinois’ exploration into adding an NCAA men’s hockey program is considered a potential landscape changer. Athletic director Josh Whitman said a few road blocks remain to clear but he is optimistic about bringing hockey to Champaign. “We’ve come a long way in the last six months,” he said in mid-July. The proposal includes building a $100 million, 5,000-seat multipurpose arena in downtown Champaign, close to student housing and convenient for community use. For top area players, it’s an if-you-build-it-we-will-come scenario. For now, committing to a Division I hockey program means one thing. -Shannon Ryan, Chicago Tribune. Read More.
