College hockey's last remaining independent has finally, mercifully found a home.
The WCHA has agreed to take on the remaining CCHA programs Alaska, Bowling Green, Ferris State, Lake Superior State and Western Michigan.
The WCHA voted to add Northern Michigan back to the conference, giving the WCHA six members and at least temporarily creating some sort of equilibrium in college hockey.
A proposal to stop the bleeding in the insanity that is the latest wave of college hockey conference realignment.
According to a report in USCHO, several CCHA and WCHA programs may break their current conference affiliations to form a new college hockey conference.
